Emotional Geographies

That geographical locations inspire and hold orders of emotions is an ordinary belief. That we ‘feel’ something for places we call home or work and that we actively invent orders of being that emerge from sites such as ‘the beach’ and ‘the city’ is the stuff of many a memoir, edited collection and an often uncritical expectation. The essays in this issue of Cultural Studies Review approach these emotional geographies from diverse paths.

The Emotional Geographies of the Uncanny section aims to read transnational spaces constructed and inhabited by Italian migrants and settlers to Australasia as emotional spaces of uncanny perceptions, memories, narratives and identities. Among the general articles, the focus of interest coming to rest upon police buildings, remnants of nature, items in a museum collection, simulated national buildings not entirely lost in translation and trees made over  (and even museamised) in human-centred productions because of the mark of a possible ‘explorer’ on its trunk. In other pieces, the authors’ foci is the suburb: in an exploration of class and materiality in the remnants of colonial villas and in a new writing piece that tracks paths of barrows and dogs through a suburb’s streets.
