On 1 September 1906, a young, unveiled Muslim woman, Atiya Fyzee (1877–1967), boarded a steamboat that began a historical travel from India to Britain. During her sojourn, Atiya recorded her experiences and observations in a diary. This book is about her life, writing, and travels. It offers a biographical overview of her literary and cultural contributions within the context of her extended family network, women’s changing roles, and Muslim socio-religious reform movements in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. It also focuses on her relationships with Maulana Shibli Numani and Muhammad Iqbal, two prominent Muslim male intellectuals of her time. This book deals with themes of travel writing, empire, world history, and Britain’s multicultural past. It also includes a full translation of Atiya’s Zamana-i-tahsil from the original Urdu.

Keywords:   Atiya Fyzee, travels, India, Britain, Maulana Shibli Numani, Muhammad Iqbal, world history, travel writing, reform movements, Zamana-i-tahsil
