Stormy weather from the Atlantic kept flights grounded from Southampton to Nantes so my travel writing fieldwork will have to wait until after Spring term teaching. The moment at the holiday location is on hold. Meanwhile, earthbound, I have discovered this WordPress Blog for French History academics, and enthusiasts. If you are logged-in to WordPress as you read my blog, Travels with Charlie in Search of French, then you will be able to subscribe to Liana Varda’s posts at h-france.net/fffh
The toureme is a concept I developed during my doctoral study of literary tourism in France, focussing in particular on the seaside town of Concarneau in Brittany. Reflecting on the toureme now, I can see that the three components also take place over time, in a strongly narrative way, viz. before, during and after. I define and discuss the concept of the toureme from page 252 onwards in the book which came out of my PhD thesis: Researching Literary Tourism
