Time, Routes, and Places of Nineteenth-Century Travelers was initiated with the support from Marquette University Helen Way Klingler College of Arts and Sciences.
The project began in 2011 with the collaboration of Dr. Eugenia Afinoguénova, Associate Professor of Spanish (Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures) Aishah Al-Fadhalah, B.A. candidate, double major in Speech Pathology and Spanish (Class of 2013)

They were asked to choose, read, and data-mine a novel from the Bibliography page provided on this web-page. The bibliography consists of books that were written during the 19th century and are the accounts travel literature of Spain.
