"Travel, Tourism and Identity" - now published; Chapters on Greece and Corfu




"Travel, Tourism, and Identity addresses the psychological and social adjustments that occur when people make contact with others outside their social, cultural, or linguistic groups. Whether such contact is the result of tourism, seeking exile, or relocating abroad, the volume’s contributors demonstrate how one’s identity, cultural assumptions, and worldview can be brought into question".


"Travel, Tourism and Identity, edited by Gabriel R. Ricci (New Brunswick and London: Transaction Publishers, 2015), includes a chapter by David Wills, "Travel Writers and Greece: The Legacy of Sir Patrick Leigh Fermor".

This chapter is based on a talk given at the Society for Modern Greek Studies 2012 event "Sounds of the Greek World and Beyond: the travel-writing of Patrick Leigh Fermor". The book also includes Greek-interest chapters by William Hutton (the importance of Dio’s travels), Maria Kostaridou (the Nostoi of John Frederick Usko), Vasiliki Galani-Moutafi (Greece in travel writing and tourist discourse), Loretta Proctor (An Anglo-Greek author’s search for roots and identity), and Jim Potts (Tourists, service providers, and residents, Corfu)".
