This book looks at how scholars travelled to meet kindred spirits. Or, how an American anthropologist, then based in Australia, understood villages in the Salcete. Other essays look closely at travel blogs focussing on Goa; a French journalist’s radio travelogues; travel narratives; Naipaul’s “Goa”; the depiction of this region in the works of writers of different centuries, such as François Pyrard de Laval, Tomé Pires, and Denis Cottineau de Kloguen; reflections in Manohar Shetty’s Goa Travels, and the Goa Writers’ Inside/Out. One essay looks at Goa’s depiction in some works of fiction.
