Perceptions of Race and Nation in English and American Travel Writers, 1833-1914

Series:

Erik S. Schmeller

This book focuses on how nineteenth-century English and American travelers discussed issues of race in relation to both their home country and the country they were visiting. It also illustrates how regardless of nationality, between 1833 and 1914, travelers’ perceptions of race fluctuated to reflect changing national identities. Encompassing the perspectives of both male and female travelers from different backgrounds, Perceptions of Race and Nation in English and American Travel Writers, 1833-1914 explores the role of race in national identity, a topic that remains relevant for scholarly interest and debate.
