This seminar looks at topics in the histories of discovery and exploration from the Middle Ages to the age of space travel. We will read and discuss original texts, we will look at depictions of other cultures in art (and their sense of the explorer), and we will look at how explorers and explored have been seen over the last century in film. Students will be expected to read selections from the works of male and female travelers, and there will be three short papers. Students may also look at areas and explorers of their own interest.
