In the nineteenth century, there was a significant shift in the way Italy was both perceived and discussed in Britain. After 1815, the tradition of the “Grand Tour” waned and new types of travellers made trips to Europe. Encouraged by changes in the cost, ease and motivations for travel, unprecedented numbers of women travelled to Italy and published their accounts. Focussing on some pivotal works by British women writers, the course addresses their significant contribution to a number of genres of travel writing and to the political and aesthetic representation of Italy in the nineteenth century.

A detailed reading list will be made available at the beginning of term.
