This text brings together the writings of more than twenty international academics to explore the rapidly expanding field of literary journalism - a term the editors view as ʻdisputed terrainʼ. Journalists from a uniquely wide range of countries and regions - including Britain, Canada, Cape Verde, Finland, India, Ireland, Latin America Norway, Sweden, the Middle East, the United States - are covered as are a range of subject areas. These are divided into sections titled Disputed Terrains: Crossing the Boundaries between Fact, Reportage and Fiction, Exploring Subjectivities: The Personal is Where We Start From, Long-form Journalism: Confronting the Conventions of Daily War Journalism, Colonialism, Freedom Struggles and the Politics of Reportage, and Transforming Conventional Genres. The collection will be of interest to students of journalism, media studies, literary studies, and culture and communication as well as all those interested in exploring the literary possibilities of journalism at its best.
