Publication by DPDF 2008 Urban Visual Studies Fellow Bridget Gilman featured in New Suburban Stories, edited by Martin Dines and Timotheus Vermeulen.

Exploring fiction, film and art from across the USA, South America, Asia, Europe and Australia, New Suburban Stories brings together new research from leading international scholars to examine cultural representations of the suburbs, home to a rapidly increasing proportion of the world’s population. Focusing in particular on works that challenge conventional attitudes to suburbia, the book considers how suburban communities have taken control of their own representation to tell their own stories in contemporary novels, poetry, autobiography, cinema, social media and public art tell the story of how suburban.
