A study of urban identity and community looks at selected twentieth
century literary and film texts in the context of theorizations of
modernism, postmodernism, postcoloniality and globalization.
Brooker draws on Beck and Giddens to propose a 'reflexive
modernism' which rewrites and re-imagines the urban scene. The
principal cities considered are London and New York, Tokyo, Hong
Kong and Bangkok. Writers considered include Ezra Pound and T.S.
Eliot, Langston Hughes, Hanif Kureishi, Iain Sinclair, Paul Auster,
Sarah Schulman and William Gibson. Filmmakers include Patrick
Keiller and Wong Kar-Wai.
