In this volume, scholars from a wide range of fields within the humanities explore the links between space and place and their relation to cultural expression. This collection shows that a focus on the spatial can help elucidate important facets of symbolic expression and cultural production, whether it be literature, music, dance, films, or art.

"We know now that space is something more than a rough container of events that are occurring in time. It was one of the original purposes of geocriticism to help demonstrating it. Through their own lens, the contributors of Spatiality and Symbolic Expression explore the referential aspect of all a set of symbolic expressions. Four key-words are pointed out by Richardson: philosophy, psychology, plasticity, and power. By intertwining them appropriately, the contributors of this collection keep a perfect focus on the crossroad between spatial realities and symbolic expression." - Bertrand Westphal, Université de Limoges, France
