The leading monthlies--among them Mayfair, Chatelaine, and La Revue Moderne--presented travel as both a mode of self-improvement and a way of negotiating national identity. Magazines, Travel and Middlebrow Culture announces a new cross-cultural approach to periodical studies, reading both French- and English-language magazines in relation to an emerging transatlantic middlebrow culture. Mainstream magazines, Hammill and Smith argue, forged a connection between upward mobility and geographic mobility. Students and scholars of Canadian studies, cultural and social history, publishing, literary studies, cultural studies, communications studies, and print culture will find this book, a first in Canadian middlebrow culture, a must-have on their shelf."-- Provided by publisher."@en ;
