Abstract

 This research presents an analytical critique of the tensions within the contact zone revealed in the TRAVELOGUEs by western women. Travel writing, as a literary genre, has often been marginalized in literary researches. TRAVELOGUEs written by women have been doubly marginalized because in patriarchal societies, woman writers have been denied the credit that man writers have been granted. Western women have occupied an unsure position in the space between the discourse of colonialism and the discourse of femininity; therefore, they often reveal such encounters, interactions, and tensions in their texts-tensions that can seldom be found in men’s travel books. These tensions can be traced in the images that WOMAN TRAVELERS offer of the East. The clash between the discourse of colonialism and the discourse of femininity during the nineteenth century gave rise to tensions that have shaped British women’s identity and influenced their social position.
