Early Modern French travel writing: récit de voyages, histories tragico- maritime, Intertextuality, orientalism, Francois Bernier, Francois Pyrard de Laval, Jean Mocquet, Nicolas de Nicolay. I am researching the degree to which these writers lay the foundations for French Orientalism, the literary genre drawn upon in their narratives and the manner in which, if at all, these narratives render problematic a binary East-West opposition.
