Taking Place argues that the relation between geographical location and the moving image is fundamental and that place grounds our experience of film and media. Its original essays analyze film, television, video, and installation art from diverse national and transnational contexts to rethink both the study of moving images and the theorization of place. Through its unprecedented and at times even obsessive attention to actual places, this volume traces the tensions between the global and the local, the universal and the particular, that inhere in contemporary debates on global cinema, television, art, and media.Contributors: Rosalind Galt, U of Sussex; Frances Guerin, U of Kent; Ji-hoon Kim; Hugh S.

Reviews

"For quite some time, scholars of the moving image have wrestled with the challenges posed by the concept of place within the study of cinema, television, and other images. At last, we have an anthology that advances interdisciplinary work on geography and the moving image on multiple fronts. This volume is an invaluable contribution to the ongoing work of understanding the geography of the image in the age of the cinema and beyond, and I recommend it highly." --Anna McCarthy, New York University "Taking Place turns critical attention to the ingredients of place in film, allowing us to regard a given film as a virtual archive of places. This emphasis is all the more welcome in the postmodern world, in which the massive reality of non-place and the hegemony of global space have become predominant. The book is a pioneering venture carried out with notable success." --Edward S.
