Hakluyt Society Studies in the History of Travel publishes monographs and edited collections of articles devoted to the history of travel, encompassing exploration, commerce, colonialism, diplomacy, religious pilgrimage, scientific journeys, ethnography and a variety of cultural encounters from the Middle Ages to the end of the nineteenth century. The series is inspired by the wealth of fascinating travel accounts from this period, such as those regularly published by the Hakluyt Society over the course of its long history, and aims to provide an interdisciplinary forum for leading scholarship on these topics. In addition to analyses of travel accounts of European provenance, we encourage proposals that reflect a non-Eurocentric perspective of the genre of travel writing and its contexts.
