What She Carries With Her: Investigating Women's Interwar Travel Narratives

Salena Parker

Saturday, March 18 - 3:00PM to 3:45PM
Tower D

In my lecture, I will juxtapose the travel photography and writing of Ruth Gruber, Ella Maillart, and "Aloha" Wanderwell through the use of visual rhetorics, feminist geography, and narratology (Pratt 1995, Lawler 2008, and Showalter 1981). We need to understand the technology they were using; these women needed to have a firm understanding of cultural and historical contexts, angle, light, and space in order to articulate images and text to the way they moved through places and spaces.
