Notes

Abstract:
The following study is intended to explore the interconnection between the individual psyche and the exterior spaces it moves through and functions in, as well as the implications this relationship holds for culture. In particular, the goal is to examine Mary Wollstonecraft’s text "Letters Written During a Short Residence" within the context of the biographical events of her life, her letters, and her political writings to understand her use of the travelogue as a subversive mode of self-determination, one which shattered the ideological constraints of her time. Theories utilized include the Kantian Sublime, Lacanian conceptions of identity, spatial theory, and the structural framework of psychogeography.
