About this title


Cross-Cultural Travel presents the proceedings of a major international conference on literature and travel held in November 2002 at the National University of Ireland, under the auspices of the Royal Irish Academy. The contributors, including such leading scholars as Joep Leerssen and Luigi Monga, illustrate the remarkable scope and vitality of work currently undertaken in the field. Cross-Cultural Travel is a multidisciplinary crossroads where literature, cultural studies and history engage with a variety of other disciplines. Topics range from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century and from constructions in fiction and poetry to the testimonies of explorers, diplomats, servants of Empire, journalists, artists, tourists, or established writers. Among the authors featured are Rousseau, Heine, Hugo, Sand, Svevo, Cela, Ingeborg Bachmann, Barthes, Tabucchi, Chatwin, Allende, and Sebald. Taken together, these fifty essays illuminate the processes of identity formation, whether the great lines of national identity or the personal edges of awareness. They explore over time differing relationships to the physical world, experiences of cultural difference, and the interplay between the subject’s mobility and its textualization.

About the Author:

The Editor: Jane Conroy lectures in French in the National University of Ireland, Galway. She received her doctorate in French literature from the Université de Paris IV, Sorbonne, in 1994. She is the author of Terres tragiques (1999), a study of seventeenth-century French dramatizations of English and Scottish history. Her recent publications have been on questions of alterity and identity and French travelers in Ireland. Her current research addresses the part played by travel in shaping French awareness of other European nations.
The Royal Irish Academy, founded in 1785, is an all-Ireland, independent, academic body that promotes study and excellence in the sciences, humanities and social sciences. It is the principal learned society in Ireland and has approximately three hundred members who are elected in recognition of their academic achievements. Much of its work operates through its network of National Committees. The National Committee for Modern Language Studies is instrumental in promoting scholarship and exchange amongst researchers.
