Literary Geographies, virtual theme issue of Society & Space

There is a virtual theme issue of Society & Space on Literary Geographies. It’s available from the Society & Space open site. There is an introduction to the articles, which also contains some positioning around the use of literature and fiction in geography, and there are a series of open access articles drawn from the journal’s archives. The use of literature and fiction as a resource for conducting social and cultural research is shown to be a really developed theme in geography (especially when the extended reading list is explored). I’ve been wondering how wide we might open the net in importing alternative forms of knowledge into research. I’ve posted a bit about this in the past.
