About this book

Using place studies within a postcolonial context, this study explores the sense-aesthetic dimensions in literature such as smell, sound, etc. that often challenge the rationalizing logic of modernity. Through close readings of writers such as Conrad and Coetzee, Moslund invites scholars to shift focus from discourse analysis to aesthetic analysis.

About the authors

Sten Pultz Moslund is Associate Professor in the department of Comparative Literature in the Institute for the Study of Culture at the University of Southern Denmark.

Reviews

"This is a fascinating extension of the postcolonial concern with place. Moslund takes the theme of the conflicted construction of place into new territory grounding the interrelation of place, body, language, and aesthetics in new readings of some of the key texts in the field." - Bill Ashcroft, Australian Professorial Fellow of the Arts and Media, the University of New South Wales, Australia
