Defining and redefining space in the English -speaking world : contacts, frictions, clashes by Fanny Moghaddassi( )

6 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contacts, on the individual and institutional levels and in the political and aesthetic spheres, lead to redefinitions of existing identities through frictions and, sometimes, clashes. Focusing on the material conditions of such contacts, frictions, and clashes, this volume particularly explores their essentially spatial nature, highlighting the stakes of such definitions and redefinitions of space. Efforts at defining and mapping spaces, physical experiences of contacts, frictions and clashes, tensions between different groups or genres and literary or political competition for space and infl
Géographies du monde, géographies de l'âme : le voyage dans la littérature anglaise de la fin du Moyen Age by Fanny Moghaddassi( Book )

11 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in French and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

English literature from the late Middle Ages largely resorts to the theme of travelling. Narrating explorations (Mandeville's Travels, Saint Brendan, or Kyng Alisaunder), travels in the beyond (Saint Patrick, The Vision of Tundale) or the adventures of wandering knights (Sir Orfeo, Sir Degarre and Floris and Blauncheflour), such literature always aims, in different ways, at representing the real world.

Geographies of contact : Britain, the Middle East and the circulation of knowledge( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and French and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4e de couverture indique : "This interdisciplinary collection of essays, in keeping with recent historiographic approaches to East-West cultural relations, focuses on the material and spatial conditions of cultural encounters between Britain and the Middle East, from the late Middle Ages to the dawn of the twentieth century. By exploring a diversity of contexts and sites of encounter (from cosmopolitan cities to private collections), and by underlining the manifold nature of cultural exchanges connected with them, the essays outline the dynamic and complex interplay which contributed to the circulation of knowledge between these regions. They also bring together a variety of practices (diplomatic, geographical, aesthetic, archaeological, literary or commercial) in order to highlight the multi-layered dimension of these cultural transfers and exchanges"
