• Abject Spaces in The Bridge and The Killing: The Post-9/11 City of Scandinavian Noir’

      Pheasant-Kelly, Frances; Wilhite, Keith (Fairleigh Dickinson Press, 2016-05)
      This chapter is from a book which analyzes post-9/11 literature, film, and television through an interdisciplinary lens, taking into account contemporary debates about spatial practices, gentrification, cosmopolitanism, memory and history, nostalgia, the uncanny and the abject, postmodern virtuality, the politics of realism, and the economic and social life of cities. Featuring an international group of scholars, the volume theorizes how literary and visual representations expose the persistent conflicts that arise as cities rebuild in the shadow of past ruins.
