Avi­a­tion in the lit­er­a­ture and cul­ture of inter­war Britain
BuchcoverAvi­a­tion in the Lit­er­a­ture and Cul­ture of Inter­war Britain looks at the impact of avi­a­tion in Britain and beyond through the 1920s and 1930s. This book con­sid­ers how in this peri­od fly­ing went from a weapon of war to an exten­sive indus­try that includ­ed civil­ian air trav­el, air mail deliv­ery, fly­ing shows and cam­paigns to cre­ate ‘airmind­ed­ness’. Essays look at these devel­op­ments through the work of writ­ers, film­mak­ers and fly­ers and exam­ines the airmind­ed mod­ernism that marked this rad­i­cal peri­od. Its four­teen chap­ters include stud­ies of texts by Vir­ginia Woolf, George Orwell, Eliz­a­beth Bowen, W.H. Auden, T.H. White and John Mase­field; accounts of the annu­al RAF Dis­play at Hen­don and the Schnei­der Tro­phy; and the achieve­ments of celebri­ty fly­ers such as Amy John­son. This col­lec­tion pro­vides a fresh per­spec­tive on the inter­war peri­od by bring­ing analy­sis of avi­a­tion and airmind­ed­ness to the study of British lit­er­a­ture, his­to­ry, mod­ernism, mobil­i­ties and the his­to­ry of tech­nol­o­gy and trans­porta­tion.

The Con­tem­po­rary Aca­d­e­m­ic Mys­tery Nov­el: A Study in Genre
BuchcoverThe book focus­es on con­tem­po­rary staff-cen­tred mys­tery nov­els set in the aca­d­e­m­ic domain, writ­ten by schol­ars who enrich the gener­ic con­ven­tion of the detec­tive nov­el with their aca­d­e­m­ic exper­tise. The author delin­eates the aca­d­e­m­ic mys­tery genre con­ven­tions and their con­nec­tion with the char­ac­ter­is­tics of both the clas­si­cal detec­tive nov­el and the aca­d­e­m­ic (uni­ver­si­ty) nov­el. The analy­sis shows that the aca­d­e­m­ic mys­tery nov­el not only fills in the clas­si­cal detec­tive for­mu­la with aca­d­e­m­ic dis­course, uni­ver­si­ty set­tings, and the char­ac­ters and con­flicts of aca­d­e­mics from dif­fer­ent ech­e­lons of the uni­ver­si­ty hier­ar­chy but also, and more impor­tant­ly, refers to and com­ments upon the cur­rent sit­u­a­tion of ter­tiary edu­ca­tion.
