Over the past two decades, scholarly interest in travel and travel writing has developed significantly. Critical engagement with issues such as imperialism, postcolonialism, ethnography, and cultural anthropology has led to increasingly sophisticated readings of the travel writing genre and a growing acknowledgement of its complex history. This volume is the first of its kind to identify a specifically Sub-Saharan African lineage within the broader tradition of travel writing, and it explores the reason for Africans' exclusion from the genre, as well as the important relationship between ethnicity and travel in the concerns that define African writers' approaches to travel.
