  • 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
  • Original travel writing that explicitly engages its generic precedents or the historically complicated conditions of travel.
