Abstract

Maps might be good at representing a landscape’s facts, but they often fail to capture the human stories – historical and personal – that imbue a place with meaning. These limitations are exaggerated by digital maps which, like their analogue precursors, cannot comprehend an embodied sense of place. This chapter demonstrates how a literary spatial narrative affords new ways of rectifying this limitation. It demonstrates how incorporating embodied data – including heart-rate monitoring and GPS tracks – alongside a literary text can transform how we understand the role of embodiment in historical and contemporary place-making.
