What Travel Writing can tell us about Life - Callum Ruddock Creative Conversations

    • Society & Culture

In a world dominated by Youtube videos and Instagram images that can take you anywhere in the world, is there still a place for travel writing? How can the different types of writing about travel tell us about where we come from and who we are?

Travel writer and Oxford resident Callum Ruddock joins Creative Conversations host Yang-May Ooi in a wide ranging conversation about the art of writing about travel, where they discuss the different types of travel writing and what travel can teach us about life.  As both of them are Oxford residents and neighbours, they also reflect on whether we can bring the curiosity of travel to the place where we live, especially in the context of the global pandemic and travel restrictions.
