Abstract [en]

Margareta Petersson took her doctorate in 1988 with the dissertation Indien i svenska reseskildringar 1950-1975 [India in Swedish Travel Accounts 1950-1975]. In that study Petersson problematizes travel writing as a genre and discusses whether it should be regarded as documentary or ction. Furthermore, she focuses on the picture of India that is conveyed in a number of travel accounts, how they are tied to their time, and what values and patterns of thought, here called norms, are established. In my article I proceed from part of Petersson’s analysis to study how travels to India have been described in some Swedish books for children. I consider travel literature as a genre with reference to child readers, and I examine the context in which the narratives arose. I also examine how the image of India is constructed in these accounts and how this image is coloured by the genre af liation of the narratives and the time when the story was written.
