HIST 338 - History of Travel

3 hours
Travel writing provides unique evidence of human interaction, as people wrote about experiencing other parts of the world and the people within them. This class uses travel narratives as a window into cross-cultural contact, the formation and disintegration of empires, social and political movements, and the construction of selfhood. In this class, students will read a selection of travel narratives from around the world, from medieval times to the present, with a particular focus on how Europeans interacted with non-European people and places.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 101 

This course will satisfy the core area requirement in history.
