Teaching Travel Writing

 

The Society for the Study of American Travel Writing seeks abstracts for a session on “Teaching Travel Writing” for the American Literature Association annual conference in Boston, Massachusetts, May 25-28, 2017.

Confronting this, we welcome papers on the specific challenges and rewards of travel-writing pedagogy, either as a study in itself or as a practice.

  

Proposals might consider the following questions:
