The articles here focus on England, France, Africa, and the early United States, as well as on the nature of how travel narratives contributed to the formation of humanistic culture. Contributors include well-known authorities on travel narratives, including Mary Fuller (MIT) and Joan-Pau Rubies (London School of Economics), as well as younger scholars-Jonathan Sassi (City University of New York), Nicholas Dew (McGill University), and Anne Good (Minnesota)-already making a decisive mark in early modern studies.
