2019 (English)In: The Routledge Research Companion to Travel Writing / [ed] Alasdair Pettinger & Tim Youngs, London: Routledge , 2019, p. 86-98-Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter focuses on second journeys — a sub-genre of footsteps travelling — in which a traveler uses a previous travelogue as an explicit map to follow. Affinities with other forms of reiterations such as religious and secular pilgrimages, the Grand Tour, and literary pilgrimages are examined through a focus on issues of nostalgia, oversaturation, and authenticity. Finally, Bea Uusma’s The Expedition: My Love Story (2013) is approached as an example of a postmodern, symbiotic second journey. It is argued that it demonstrates a mutualistic form of symbiosis as it re-actualizes the significance of the first journey: the 1897 Swedish Andrée expedition.
