following are welcome:

   Original travel writing;
   Editions of out-of-print travel books or previously unpublished travel
memoirs;
   English translations of important travel books in other languages;
   Theoretical and historical treatments of ways in which travel and travel
writing engage such questions as religion, nationalism/cosmopolitanism, and
empire; gender and sexuality; race, ethnicity, and immigration; and the
history of the book, print culture, and translation.
   Biographies of significant travelers or groups of travelers (including but
not limited to pilgrims, missionaries, anthropologists, tourists, explorers,
immigrants)
   Critical studies of the works of significant travelers or groups of
travelers;
   Pedagogy of travel and travel literature and its place in curricula.

Please submit a proposal that outlines the rationale and projected audience
for the book and its relation to other books in the field; include the book's
table of contents or a chapter outline, the estimated length and the
timetable for completion, and the introduction and a sample chapter. Please
