Abstract

We spend more and more of our everyday lives in what Marc Augé calls non-places – homogenous, but bland places of transit. This anthology addresses the representations of non-places in literature, culture and media, and critiques and re-actualizes Augé’s work twenty years after its initial formulation.

The anthology contains 17 articles engaged directly in the application, retrofitting and broadening of the concept of the non-place to a range of literary and media texts, as well as the merging of this concept to other theoretical concepts by e.g. Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Alain Badiou and Zygmunt Bauman.

Authors, film-makers and topics discussed include Franz Kafka, Jacques Tati, Anders Bodelsen, Lars von Trier, Douglas Coupland, Rodrigo Plá, Ida Hattemer-Higgins, Steven Spielberg, Moritz von Uslar, Nicolas Winding Refn, concentration camp witness literature, film locations in Northern Jutland, and many others.

This anthology is the seventh publication in the IRGiC series and it springs from a research seminar held at Aalborg University in May 2013: “Non-Place in Literature, Media and Culture”.
