Literary Floridas: Imaginings in a Wild Peninsula

As a setting, as an actual place in the world, Florida is usually imagined in satirical terms, the eternal provocation to comedians and crime writers with wicked senses of humor. The natural environment is overwhelming in its greenness, its flatness, it humidness, its infernal hotness, its weather, its beasts, and at times its citizens as well. Culturally, there is not much “Old Florida” to be found unless we count the primeval landscape.

When Star Trek debuted on NBC on September 8, 1966, there was little indication that its longevity across multiple platforms (films, series, books) would rival that of series such as Doctor Who, or that the series (and its fans) would become fixtures of popular culture, objects of academic study, and an outsized influence on science fiction.

 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the hit franchise, and celebrations of its cultural impact have been as varied as the show’s own incarnations.

Since the turn of the twenty-first century, few conditions have had such a profound impact on the public imagination as dementia. As Swinnen and Schweda’s recent edited collection showed, dementia is no longer the sole province of biomedical discourse, but has thoroughly penetrated the cultural sphere, finding popular representation in literature, film, theatre and television. Correspondingly, a growing research culture is emerging that explores, interrogates, and evaluates the ways in which Alzheimer’s Disease and other forms of dementia are being harnessed for diverse symbolic, aesthetic, and narrative purposes.
