'This is a beautiful and heartfelt book which skilfully weaves together aspects of space, place, memory, emotional geographies of childhood, home and neighbourhood through lenses of autoethnography, cultural history and more besides'Owain Jones, Bath Spa University, UK
About the Author
Peter Hughes Jachimiak is senior lecturer in Media & Cultural Studies at the Faculty of Creative Industries, University of South Wales, UK. His research interests are to do with children's cultures of the 1970s and 1980s and the way in which the cultural artefacts of childhood, of those two decades, manifested themselves within the wider cultural geographies of the time. As such, Peter Hughes Jachimiak's current work explores, on one hand, 'children, spectralities, and ghost cultures', and, on the other, 'utopia, dystopia, and science fiction aimed at children and young adults'.
