How did realist fiction alter in the effort to craft forms and genres receptive to the dynamism of an expanding empire and globalizing world? Do these nineteenth-century variations on the "geopolitical aesthetic" continue to resonate today? Crossing literary criticism, political theory, and longue duree history, The Victorian Geopolitical Aesthetic explores these questions from the standpoint of mid-nineteenth-century novelists such as Wilkie Collins, George Eliot, Gustave Flaubert, and Anthony Trollope as well as successors including E. M. Forster and the creators of recent television serials. By looking at the category of "sovereignty" at multiple scales and in diverse formal, geographic, and historical contexts, Lauren M. E. Goodlad shows that the ideological crucible for "high" realism was not a hegemonic liberalism. It was, rather, a clash of modern liberal ideals struggling to distintricate themselves from a powerful conservative vision of empire while striving to negotiate the inequalities of power along lines of race, gender, nationality, and ethnicity which a supposedly universalistic liberalism had helped to generate. The material occasion for the mid-Victorian era's rich realist experiments was, thus, the transition from an informal empire of trade that could be celebrated as "liberal" to a neo-feudal imperialism that only Tories could warmly embrace. In this way the book places realism's "geopolitical aesthetic" at the heart of recurring modern experiences of breached sovereignty, forgotten history, and subjective exile. The Coda, titled "The Way We Historicize Now", concludes the book with connections to recent debates about "surface reading", "distant reading" and the hermeneutics of suspicion.

Maps and Territories

Maps and Territories

... le pouvoir et la réalité du monde' ['conscious of representing power and the
real world'] (246, 153). With their shadowy demeanor, these men, embodying
Fredric Jameson's geopolitical aesthetic, stand in for totalized corporate 'power'

The rapidity of postwar globalization and the structural changes it has brought to both social and spatial aspects of everyday life has meant, in France as elsewhere, the destabilizing of senses of place, identity, and belonging, as once familiar, local environments are increasingly de-localized and made porous to global trends and planetary preoccupations. Maps and Territories identifies such preoccupations as a fundamental underlying impetus for the contemporary French novel. Indeed, like France itself, the protagonists of its best fiction are constantly called upon to renegotiate their identity in order to maintain any sense of belonging within the troubled territories they call home. Maps and Territories reads today's French novel for how it re-maps such territories, and for how it positions its protagonists vis-à-vis the pressures of globalization, uncovering previously unseen affinities amongst, and offering fresh readings of - and offering exciting new perspectives on - a diverse set of authors: namely, Michel Houellebecq, Chloé Delaume, Lydie Salvayre, Jean-Philippe Toussaint, Virginie Despentes, Philippe Vasset, Jean Rolin, and Marie Darrieussecq. In the process, it sets the literary works into dialogue with 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.

With a detailed range of approaches, this new collection investigates how cinematic narratives can and have been used to portray different political 'threats' and 'dangers'. Including a range of chapters with a contemporary focus, it studies issues such as: how the geopolitical world has been constructed through film how cinema can provide explanatory narratives in periods of cultural and political anxiety, uneasiness and uncertainty. Examining the ways in which film impacts upon popular understandings of national identity and the changing geopolitical world, the book looks at how audiences make sense of the (geo)political messages and meanings contained within a variety of films - from the US productions of Hollywood, to Palestinian, Mexican, British, and German cinematic traditions. This thought-provoking book draws on an international range of contributions to discuss and fully investigate world cinema in light of key contemporary issues. This book was previously published as a special issue of Geopolitics.

El presente volumen incluye una amplia variedad de artículos sobre la figura de Luis Buñuel (1900-1983), escritos por algunos de los especialistas más prominentes dentro del mundo de los estudios fímicos. Se trata de una colección única, que por primera vez recoge en un mismo volumen trabajos en español, francés e inglés. Tal decisión no sólo supone una muestra de respeto hacia los tres idiomas en los que se expresó Buñuel, sino que es también una forma de poner en evidencia el reconocimiento que su obra ha tenido y tiene en los entornos francófono y anglófono, además del hispano. Este libro nace con la ambición de abarcar la totalidad del trabajo de Buñuel, principalmente sus películas, pero también sus escritos. Cuenta, además, con capítulos que abordan cuestiones biográficas, como las relaciones de Buñuel con otros cineastas de la época, o con escritores y artistas. El Buñuel que emerge de estas páginas confirma el hecho de que el director aragonés sigue siendo uno de los cineastas más famosos e influyentes del siglo XX. Los capítulos aquí reunidos dan cuenta de todas las fases de su carrera: la primera etapa surrealista, sus colaboraciones con Dalí, su amistad con Lorca y con otros autores coetáneos, su trabajo en Filmófono, los años del exilio y la fase tardía y más internacional. En distitntas contribuciones se concede importancia a la forma, la ideología, la temática, las "películas alimenticias" de su periodo mexicano y las más personales y artísticas, consideradas su legado más universal y perdurable.
