The contributors to qMethods for Teaching Travel Literature and Writing: Exploring the World and Selfq discuss how and why they have integrated travel literature and writing into their courses. Subjects range from the study of travel literature granting insight into how travel authors, such as Bill Bryson and Paul Theroux, convince readers to -buy into- their worlds and reflect the readers' positions in society, to contemplating the meanings of the words -traveler- and -tourist-.
