Project description

In this book, Rob van de Schoor will present and analyse the travelogues of approximately ten Dutch writers (1830-1920) who visited parts of Europe and Asia. The main focus will be the changes these authors observed in the countries they visited, due to upcoming (mass) tourism, and what happened to these regions and countries after they had left. The confrontation with a different lifestyle and the implications this had on their writings and opinion on Dutch culture will be another recurrent topic in this study.
