Donne altrove. Viaggi, scrittura periodica e identità nell'Ottocento inglese

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The book focuses on the usage and publication of travelogues by 19th century women travellers to the colonies of the Empire as tools for spreading a new female identity based on courage, strenght, adventurous attitudes, in brief, based on all those features on which male identity had governed the economic, social, political and cultural areas, and last but not least, suffocated the so called 'fragile' gender. the travelogue, that is the writing of a a non fictional travel experience by women, to and in place such as the colonies, considered as the uncivilised and dangerous side of the Empire gave women the possibility to develop and perform their own selves as authoritative, mobile and powerful identities by which women could also re-define British cultural identity.
