In particular, stemming from the cultural turn in translation studies and geography, this work adopts a comparative and diachronic perspective on colonial and postcolonial descriptions of space and place, examining the variation in intertextual citation and re-writing, from early accounts to contemporary travelogues, marking a persistence in stereotyping
