Bibliography

This bibliography lists articles and books that discuss the City and focuses on recently published works (mainly from the 1980s to present day). The bibliography is divided thematically into sub-sections focusing on specific cities, areas and theoretical approaches. An extensive “General” section of works discussing more than one city is found towards the end of the list.

Current sub-sections highlight research conducted on:
Baghdad, Beijing, Beirut, Berlin, Cairo, Dublin, Helsinki, Istanbul, London, New York, Paris, Stockholm, Toronto, Venice; Other European cities, Other Asian cities, Other Nordic cities, Other American cities; Brazil, Italy, Spain; Suburbs; and Ecocriticism & Literary Ecology.

By no means is the Bibliography exhaustive or complete – its main purpose is to guide you further into your research and give you an idea of what kind of work has previously been published in literary urban studies.

The Bibliography is a joint effort by the ALUS community and we encourage members to send in their suggestions: if you have titles in mind that should be included in the listing, please send them to the current Bibliography Editor, Ms. Meeria Vesala. She can be reached at: meeria.vesala [a] tuni.fi. The Bibliography was last updated on 11 Jan 2022.
