Worlds Made of Concrete and Celluloid

I have an essay called 'Worlds Made of Concrete and Celluloid: The London Council Estate in Nil By Mouth and Wonderland' appearing in Cultural Ways of Worldmaking: Media and Narratives ed. by Vera Nünning, Ansgar Nünning & Birgit Neumann (Berlin: De Gruyter, 2010). 


The book collects responses to and applications of Nelson Goodman's book Ways of Worldmaking, from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. My contribution examines London council estates in film, comparing two quite different depictions in the context of Goodman's notion of 'worldmaking'. The book is coming out next month and also contains essays by my London Consortium colleagues Ben Dawson, Stephen Sale, and Steven Connor. Details are here.
