The Landscaping of Metaphor and Cultural Identity

Topographies of a Cornish Pastiche

Patrick Laviolette

Perceptions of place and of landscape often clash. Based upon a decade of intermittent yet ongoing ethnographic research which explores the UK’s Cornish peninsula, this volume investigates the social construction of landscape identity from a diversity of conceptual perspectives influenced by contemporary anthropological theories as well as recent developments within the fields of visual and material culture studies.
Contents: Landscapes on the Margins of Modernity – Art and Literature Analysis – Contours of Identity – Speaking of Landscapes – Contrasting Culture – Death Defining – Conclusions, Where difference Lies.
