Regional Aesthetics free pdf Although there is an increased awareness of the relevance of space and geography across humanities disciplines (the so-called 'spatial turn'), its applicability to UK media history has hitherto been largely overlooked, partly due to the prevailing interest in the discursive formation of national or globalised identity through media. This anthology sets out to redress this, through specially written chapters which explore regional media cultures, the communication of place, the influence of location, and the idea of geographically located identity. Regional Aesthetics has a historical (as well as geographical) and a cross-media focus, examining the aesthetic and political dimensions of regional representations in film (feature films, amateur film and educational film)- novels- television (drama, comedy, documentary and educational programming)- music- radio- and digital media. In mapping UK media cultures across the C20th and beyond, this books functions as an 'academic GPS', designed to introduce and encourage the study of regionally located media in the curriculum.
