Narratives of Place in Literature and Film Hardback
Edited by Steven (University of Winchester, UK) Allen, Kirsten (University of Hawai'i at Hilo, USA) Mollegaard
Part of the Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies series
Narratives of place link people and geographic location with a cultural imaginary through literature and visual narration.
Contemporary literature and film often frame narratives with specific geographic locations, which saturate the narrative with cultural meanings in relation to natural and man-made landscapes.
This interdisciplinary collection seeks to interrogate such connections to probe how place is narrativized in literature and film.
Utilizing close readings of specific filmic and literary texts, all chapters serve to tease out cultural and historical meanings in respect of human engagement with landscapes.
Always mindful of national, cultural and topographical specificity, the book is structured around five core themes: Contested Histories of Place; Environmental Landscapes; Cityscapes; The Social Construction of Place; and Landscapes of Belonging.
