Yet, whilst acknowledging the magnitude of Coburn’s editorial achievement, recent critics have also articulated an anxiety for what has been sacrificed through the systematic structuring of Coleridge’s ‘zigzagging accretions’ (Cheshire 2009: 298). These are problems which were recognized by Coburn herself as she introduced a second numbering system to enable ‘[patient] readers interested in the composition of a single notebook … to reconstruct it, approximately, from the tables at the end of the Notes volume’ (Coburn 1957a: xxi).
The rationale for structuring 18 Mapping Cultures the volume in this way is to cluster together contributions which, firstly, engage with textualities of space, place and mapping and the cultural topographics of literary, cinematic and urban forms of spatial practice. Secondly, the volume draws together a selection of essays that address aspects of performance and cultural memory as mapped across four UK cities: Liverpool, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Salford in Greater Manchester. The third section includes contributions which variously explore the practical, instrumental and performative role of maps, whether as methodological tools in ethnographic and qualitative research, apparatuses for marketing and communication, or as sitespecific agents for psycho-geographic or pedagogical forms of urban spatial engagement.
