Welcome to the Wonderer

This is a collection of travel writing by Willa Hammitt Brown, an historian, teacher, and all around decent gal. She is¬†currently a Preceptor in Expository Writing at Harvard University and has previously taught at the University of Virginia and on board the MV Explorer for Semester at Sea. She holds a BA from Oxford University and a PhD from the University, where she spent far too long wandering around Northwoods motels writing her thesis: “Gentlemen of the Woods: Manhood, Myth and the American Lumberjack, 1860-1920.” You can find her past travel writing from India, Israel, Turkey, France, Italy and the UK here. She tweets nonsense¬†here and puts pretty pictures on Instagram here.
