Sisters of the Road…Travel Writing by Women Throughout History

with Beatriz Badikian-Gartler
  Beatriz Badikian-Gartler
Listen to excerpts from the travel writings of women throughout history, focusing on American and British women of the 18th, 19th, and 20th centuries.  The dramatically presented readings are interspersed with brief explanations on the nature of this genre, discussions on what makes the female writers distinct from their male counterparts, and observations on historical and societal changes to the genre.

Recorded March 27, 2006, at the Nineteenth Century Club.
