Summary
The eighteenth century witnessed the publication of an unprecedented number of voyages and travels, genuine and fictional. Within a genre distinguished by its diversity, curiosity, and experimental impulses, Katrina O'Loughlin investigates not just how women in the eighteenth century experienced travel, but also how travel writing facilitated their participation in literary and political culture. She canvases a range of accounts by intrepid women, including Lady Mary Wortley Montagu's 'Turkish Embassy Letters', Lady Craven's 'Journey through the Crimea to Constantinople', Eliza Justice's 'A Voyage to Russia', and Anna Maria Falconbridge's 'Narrative of Two Voyages to the River Sierra Leone'. Moving from Ottoman courts to theatres of war, O'Loughlin shows how gender frames access to people and spaces outside Enlightenment and Romantic Britain, and how travel provides women with a powerful cultural form for re-imagining their place in the world
