Thinking (about Literary) Spaces: Ideas from the Cambridge Literary Geographies Conference

David McLaughlin


This special collection of Thinking Space pieces collects eleven short but compelling pieces developed from a conference on literary geographies held in Emmanuel College, Cambridge, in March 2017. This international gathering of geographers, literary scholars, literary cartographers and literary geographers was greatly encouraged by the editors of this journal to further the intellectual interactions between scholars working in this discipline – and to better help its advancement. This introduction provides a context for the ideas they put forward and they debates they illuminate.
