    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Examining the image of Egypt portrayed in German travelogues, this study illuminates the history of Germany’s reception of Egypt. It makes a contribution to research on travel literature and foreignness and reveals the shift that occurred in perceptions of Egypt, which were shaped by Egyptomania to Orientalism. Ultimately, it proposes an Orientalism of the early modern era as a discourse of powerlessness alongside Said’s hegemonic Orientalism.
