Bromley House Library 1816 - 2016 - Professor Tim Youngs : Why Travel Writing?  

Wednesday 30 November 2016 at 02:00pm

How has travel writing changed over the years? Why do travel writers journey and write as they do? What do readers gain from the genre? Tim Youngs, Professor of English and Travel Studies at Nottingham Trent University, draws on more that a quarter of a century's research in the subject in an attempt to answer  these other questions. Tim is the author or editor of many books on travel writing and he has spoken by invitation in more that 20 countries.

This talk, which will reflect on Bromley House Library's own collections, is part of an ongoing collaboration with NTU's Centre for Travel Writing Studies.
