The purpose of the literary geographies blog is to support collaboration in the area of literary/geographical studies.

We have created this website in order to provide an open-access collective scholarly resource. Our initial goal is to post a range of thematic bibliographies. We look forward to receiving corrections, additions and suggestions to these bibliographies as we work on them. We hope that the website will soon start to include bibliographies covering work in languages other than English.

Thanks to Marc Brosseau and Pierre-Mathieu Le Bel for the bibliography of work in French.

Une bibliographie de travaux en français est disponible ici.
