Borders and Crossings: Travel in Fiction and Fantasy

The aim of this project is to define the cultural impact of travel between distinct peoples, nationalities, and territories, and the patterns of representation that emerge in travel narratives relating to Ireland. Travel on an unprecedented scale is one of the defining features of the early modern and modern periods, whether for purposes of trade, diplomacy, colonisation, ethnographic and scientific inquiry, religious conversion or education and tourism. The cultural consequences of these excursions have been enormous. Travel defines and defies the existence of borders; it both assists and disrupts the formation of identity in social, moral, religious, and national terms; and it establishes and makes operative the categories of self and other. This project will look at travel between European nations, specifically the French and German responses to Ireland in the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. These inquiries establish the conventions of representation that governed the depiction of Irish character; the varieties of response to Irish landscape and history; the prospects of inclusion or exclusion of the Irish from a wider European community; the assessment of Irish colonial experience by Europeans who did not participate in it directly; the way that two major but very different countries re-evaluated their own national characters as a result of their ethnographic encounter in Ireland; and finally the neglected issue of how these reports influenced Irish self-perception and representation.
