UPDATE: [Travel] Women Travellers to India, 3/3; 30/4/08, UK
The deadline for proposals for the one day seminar on Women Travellers in
India has been extended to Monday 3rd March.
As part of the Maria Graham research project, the Centre for Travel
Writing Studies at Nottingham Trent University will be hosting three one-
day seminars in 2008. These will focus on women travellers to each of the
three principal regions that Maria Graham visited and wrote about: Italy,
India and Latin America.
The CTWS accordingly invites proposals for 20 minute papers that consider
any aspect of womenâ€™s travel, or womenâ€™s travel writing, relating to each
of these regions. The papers can approach the topic from any disciplinary
angle, and can focus on any historical period.
The Women Travellers in India seminar will be held on Wednesday 30th
April 2008. The extended deadline for paper proposals is Monday 3rd March
The Women Travellers in Latin America will be held in November 2008. The
precise date has not yet been finalised, but will be announced shortly.
There will be a small fee for each conference; this is likely to be in
the region of Â£10.
To offer a paper, or for more information, please contact either Dr Carl
Thompson (carl.thompson_at_ntu.ac.uk) or Dr Betty Hagglund
