This anthology seeks to bring together various explorations of the theoretical and literary significance of geographical boundaries, cartographical nuances in texts, literary and historical representations of 'setting,' the spatial compartmentalization of otherness, and the use of space to shape individual or collective ritual behavior. Additionally, contributions may consider the juxtaposition of the urban and rural, representations of conflict in 'close quarters' or public venues, the spatial qualities of the martyring of saints, the farcical humiliation of foolish husbands, the qualifications of domestic space, the marketplace, places of worship, localized food riots, public dancing, or processions.
