About the project

This book project is a follow-up of two earlier monographs on travelling and tourism in Norway from 1986 and 1998, as well as participation in the NOS-H-project The Construction of the North (2002-2005/06). It is based mainly on an analysis of 18th and 19th century travel accounts from Norway.
