Abstract in Undetermined
Regional Aesthetics: Locating Swedish Media maps more than two hundred years of Swedish media. It ranges from written travelogues in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries via feature films, documentaries, TV programmes, literature and press to contemporary video activism on the Internet. The nineteen contributors navigate the reader through a variety of media landscapes by advocating an interdisciplinary approach to “the communication of place” that mixes in-depth analyses of specific phenomena with a general understanding of modern media representations. Accordingly, this is a book that recurrently combines textual close readings with historical contextualizations in new ways.
