SIGNIFYING WITHIN AND BEYOND BORDERS: TRAVEL WRITING


Posted On Jul 27 2012 by

This paper focuses on a long ignored signifying practice, travel writing, and aims at investigating the complex relations between writing and travel. The paper first emphasises the extrinsic relations between travel and writing as social and cultural signifying practices and subsequently analyses the intrinsic connections between travel and writing as mutually reflective processes of signification within and beyond literal and conceptual borders, with a view to highlighting the semiotic mechanism by which travel writing represents the world and itself.
