Volume 17 (2013)
SpaceThis issue, guest edited by Isobel Armstrong, is dedicated to concepts of space and to nineteenth-century spaces. From the verbal constructions of space that pattern nineteenth-century novels, to the n-dimensional space of philosophic speculation and popular genre fictions, and from astronomy to the spaces of regional picture-going, of early cinema and of advertisements, these articles examine the century’s extraordinary reimaginings of space and spatial experience.
