À partir de la paire France- Brésil, réflexions sur la contribution de la litterature de voyage pour la construction d’imaginaires géographiques

It is thus a question of looking at, on the one hand, the emergence and the subsequent circulation of stereotypes, and, on the other hand, the possibility of redescription, considering characterizing patterns of travel literature.
