Nico de Klerk: The Evanescing adventure
Joachim Schätz: Travelogue Form and its Geopolitical Infelctions in Achtung Australien! Achtung Asien!
Katalin Teller: Ross’s war reports and the conventions of the genre
Some months into the research project Exploring the interwar world: the travelogues of Colin Ross (1885–1945) at LBI for History and Society, the contours that emerge from collating information from Ross’s work collected so far warrants a first discussion. We will present our preliminary findings about the media in which Ross worked: print, cinema, and photography. And we have made ample time to discuss these presentations with a number of experts who, we think, can suggest signposts for both contextualization and further research.
