Mobility at Large
Globalization, Textuality and Innovative Travel Writing
Distributed for Liverpool University Press
Mobility at Large looks at the work of innovative contemporary travel writers who experiment with form, content, and the politics of representation. Authors such as Michael Ondaatje, Caryl Phillips, and Daphne Marlatt have transformed the genre by using a variety of experimental techniques to examine the cultural and political issues raised by travel, migration, mobility, and displacement. This book challenges those who dismiss travel writing as inherently conservative and bound up in a colonial, Eurocentric tradition.
