"Cartographies of Exile is a timely, fascinating, and important new collection that charts the complex interplay between map-making and exile. Ranging across literary and cultural studies, the digital humanities, and the visual arts, Cartographies of Exile offers a strikingly interdisciplinary approach and a breadth of scholarship that will ensure its place as a key point of reference in the emergent geo- or spatial humanities." – Peta Mitchell, The University of Queensland, Australia
"This exciting and innovative book opens up a broad interdisciplinary dialogue on the spatial practices of the exilic condition. The various approaches demonstrate how the historic and political burdens on much of cartography still leave room for individual acts of agency. The volume’s meaningful contribution lies in this interface between national-regional-local map-making and individual aesthetic and political gestures of marking terrain. The authors’ lucid examples from literature, art, ecology, and new media challenge cartography to expand and account for the placelessness of exile." – Marcy E. Schwartz, Rutgers University, USA
