Feminism and the Politics of Travel after the Enlightenment by Yaël Schlick download in iPad, ePub, pdf
Her study offers new insights into the ways travel and travel writing were used to further feminist causes, an aspect which has not received much critical attention. Schlick argues that for Tristan travel was crucial for her work as a social reformer.
In its depth, Schlick's text serves as both a survey of post-Enlightenment travel literature and a detailed analysis of gender in that context. Like Rousseau, Wollstonecraft presents travel to be a means of critically investigating other societies, of gaining knowledge, and becoming a political subject, yet her traveler is female. She argues that women used travel and travel writing to demand more freedom and access to the public sphere and the realm of politics.
