Abstract

Postcolonial Eyes is the most recent publication in the well-respected Liverpool University Press series ‘Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures’ edited by Edmund Smyth and Charles Forsdick. Aedín Ní Loingsigh outlines early in the study the need ‘to untie travel writing from its Western moorings to open up a space for African representations of travel’ (p. 3). Examining for the first time a specifically sub-Saharan African lineage within the broader tradition of travel writing, Postcolonial Eyes highlights the exclusion of African writers from the genre of travel writing and identifies the preoccupations of African writers' approaches to travel.
