Abstract

Global Literary Journalism: Exploring the Journalistic Imagination (Peter Lang, of New York) brings together the writings of 22 academics focusing on literary journalism in a wide range of countries and regions including Canada, Finland, India, Ireland, Poland, Sweden, Latin America, the UK, the United States and the Middle East.

The University of Lincoln is well represented: Jane Chapman, Professor of Communications, focuses on the journalism of Arundhati Roy, Rupert Hildyard, Principal Lecturer in English, writes on John Lanchester, Nick Nuttall examines the gonzo writings of Hunter S. Thompson, PhD student Florian Zollmann delves into the John Pilger archives, while another PhD student, Anna Hoyles, explores the early journalism of Moa Martinson.

Rod Whiting looks critically at Ernest Hemingway’s career as a journalist – while John Tulloch’s chapter on Gordon Burn is titled ‘Journalism as a Novel: The Novel as Journalism’ and Richard Keeble writes on the war reporting of the Independent’s award-winning Robert Fisk.

The final chapter, by Susan Greenberg, of Roehampton University, and titled ‘Slow Journalism in the Digital Fast Lane’ examines literary journalism in the age of the internet.
