Maps and Territories

Global Positioning in the Contemporary French Novel

Joshua Armstrong

Liverpool University Press

Contemporary French and Francophone Cultures LUP

  • Maps and Territories is as much a literary study as an essay of cultural studies, places cutting-edge 21st-century French fiction into dialogue with a range of today's most influential theorists of postmodernity and globalization
  • addresses questions that are at the very heart of contemporary debates about our relationship to space and places in a world where borders and distance are being redefined by the forces of globalization
  • uncovers previously unseen affinities amongst - and offers exciting new perspectives on - a diverse set of contemporary French authors: namely, Michel Houellebecq, Chloé Delaume, Lydie Salvayre, Jean-Philippe Toussaint, Virginie Despentes, Philippe Vasset, Jean Rolin, and Marie Darrieussecq
  • uncovers previously unseen affinities amongst - and offers exciting new perspectives on - a range of today's most influential theorists of postmodernity and globalization, including Paul Virilio, Marc Augé, Peter Sloterdijk, Bruno Latour, Fredric Jameson, Edward Casey, David Harvey, and Ursula K. Heise
