    Unravelling imaginative heritage.: Understanding a city through its crime fiction

    Get PDF
    This paper focuses on media tourism - people travelling to places associated with film, TV-series, games or other forms of popular culture. In order to investigate the roles and impacts of the multiple stakeholders that are involved in this booming phenomenon, the concept ‘imaginative heritage’ is introduced. In particular, we refer to the multitude of popular, fictional narratives that have been projected upon or appropriated by specific sites throughout time and that together make up an important part of local place identity. As is argued here, imaginative heritage results from an active involvement of not only locals, fans and tourists, but also the media industries, the tourism industries and the local governments. By applying this concept to cases of crime fiction tourism and addressing the power configurations behind these heritage and tourism practices, this paper aims to contribute to a more holistic understanding of media tourism and, more in particular, the reciprocal nature of the relation between popular crime fiction, heritage and place

    Building the Hill City: Internal Improvements and Political Economy in Lynchburg, Virginia, 1791-1829

    This research explores the economic and political considerations of internal improvements in antebellum southwest Virginia. Special emphasis is paid to local petitions submitted to the Virginia General Assembly between 1791 and 1829, as well as local newspaper editorials printed or reprinted in Lynchburg, Virginia during the same period. Questions of intentionality, self-interest, and sectionalism are raised in elucidating what role localities along the ‘old frontier’ played in connecting the underdeveloped western region of the state to the developed eastern region during the early 19th century. Border towns first settled in the colonial backcountry—specifically Lynchburg, Virginia—served as ‘first movers’ in implementing internal improvements in the backcountry for the explicit purposes of seizing emerging economic opportunity. Source records show that communities such as Lynchburg viewed an inevitable national improvement not as a centralized federal mechanism of public works, but rather as a decentralized collection of bridges, canals, and roads, forming collectively a national network of communication and travel for the benefit of communities. This research shows that a developmental model can be applied to help explain, in part, how improvement philosophies from the Scottish Enlightenment helped influence and reach the backcountry town of Lynchburg, Virginia
