Scholars have sought to look beyond the traditional ‘lure of Italy’ and the elite male Grand Tour to identify a wide array of travel practices and cultures, ranging from the rise of child-friendly family ‘pleasure trips’ to the socio-political agendas of elite female travellers and sight-seeing itineraries of soldiers. Alongside this, current scholars of travel history are engaging with a creative array of fresh methodological and theoretical approaches.

In postwar Asia (notions of) modernity were not only influenced by the ‘Western’ model, but also and, arguably, even stronger by developments in the Soviet Union (China and Japan).
