Jason Finch: The Character-Space of the Gentrifier in London Fictions, 1913?64

Jason Finch is Associate Professor of English Language and Literature at Åbo Akademi University in Finland. A co-founder and currently President of the Association for Literary Urban Studies (ALUS), he works on urban literatures, chiefly of the UK and USA in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including the London ?slum? and representations of the rise and decline of ports and industrial boomtowns. He is the author of Deep Locational Criticism: Imaginative Place in Literary Research and Teaching (John Benjamins 2016) and co-editor of six books, most recently The Materiality of Literary Narratives in Urban History (Routledge 2020). Jason?s current book project, under contract with Routledge, is an introduction to literary urban studies aimed at undergraduates.

Gentrification is one of the most controversial and visible urban phenomena of the post-1945 era. With the acceleration of urbanisation and globalisation, urban renewal has taken new forms and grown increasingly complex. The classical account of gentrification, coined by Ruth Glass in her studies of London (1964), was predicated on cities in the West, but today gentrification and displacement can equally be observed worldwide in metropolitan regions as well as in smaller cities, in new-build areas and countryside regions. This calls for new and interdisciplinary approaches to urban change. In this one-day symposium, we call for more systematic attention to artistic representations of urban change in literature and other media, and for investigation of how these relate to other accounts of the phenomenon, including sociological, economic and political ones. While organized by researchers in literary studies and geography, the symposium welcomes discussion of textual or narrative aspects of many sorts of text, including novels and films but also memoirs, journalism, architectural writing, ethnographies, and academic discourse. Here you can watch presentations of the participants of the workshop.
