Guest Speaker for Removing the Boundaries: Peter Hulme
Peter Hulme will be presenting the paper "American Tropics: Towards a Literary Geography"
"American Tropics: Towards a Literary Geography" is the title of a collaborative project at the University of Essex which is investigating the writing of literary history through an attention to place. This paper will outline the project, with attention both to its underlying theory and to its conceptualisation of area, place, and site. A brief case study will look at some of the writing associated with Guantánamo Bay.
