Rethinking the Island | Rowman & Littlefield
Rethinking the Island
Over the last three decades, academic and policy writing on islands has grown rapidly. To date, effort has focused on island ecologies and environments, on island heritage and culture, and on island vulnerabilities and resilience. In much of that work, characteristics such as isolation, insularity, small size, or dependency are presented uncritically and taken for granted.The Rethinking the Island series seeks to unsettle such assumptions by comprehensively investigating the range of topological and topographical characteristics that lie at the heart of the idea of ‘islandness'. The books in this series work from a twin understanding that the island is central to Western conceptions of self, place, and planet, and that their idealization is upheld by strong associations between islands' materialities and their status as powerful imaginaries.
