Literary geography: reforging the connections

Angharad Saunders

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


ABSTRACT This article explores the current landscape of literary geography against the backdrop of a broadened interest in geography’s textual traditions. It suggests that after a period of relative health in the mid- to late twentieth century literary geography has been seemingly lost within wider debates over textual knowledges and practices as they pattern out within the discipline’s scientific history. Drawing on work from literary studies and geography, it goes on to propose three areas where there is opportunity for a literary geography to reassert itself and contribute forcefully to geographical debates.
