Gary Totten (English) has published a chapter, “Tour of Europe and Egypt,” in the book Frederick Douglass in Context, edited by Michaël Roy and published by Cambridge University Press. In the chapter, Totten argues that in Douglass’s travel diary for his 1886-87 tour of Europe and Egypt, his attention to his and others’ racialized relationship to various kinds of spaces, histories, and labor emphasizes the ways in which nineteenth-century Black travelers reframe conventional ideas about mobility and leisure.
