Cross-Channel Reflections: European Travel and Migration Across the Centuries

Cross-Channel Reflections: European Travel and Migration Across the Centuries

Cross-Channel Reflections: European Travel and Migration  Across the Centuries was held at  the British Library Conference Centre, London on 26 April 2013

This study day, organized by the European Studies Department of the British Library, was devoted to European travel writing and migration from  the late seventeenth to the twentieth century.   The speakers, who included professional writers and academics, explored both views of Britain by Continental writers and British views of the  Continent, as well as migration within and from Europe.  Areas covered  embraced Eastern and Western Europe, from the Caucasus to Scandinavia, via Spain  and Italy, and talks included one on French travellers to England between 1688  and 1734.  One session was devoted to  research projects creating innovative digital resources.
