Accordingly, this book should provide a detailed insight into how space and popular culture intersect across a broad spectrum of possible examples, including those of cinema, music, art, arcade games, cartoons, comics, advertisements, and others, with an analysis of how the space aspect figures in the particular context/s chosen. This is a pertinent topic since the use of space themes differs based on cultural contexts, and space themes can be used to explore various aspects of the human condition and provide a detached context for social commentary on politically sensitive issues. Particularly welcome are accounts of space and its effect on culture, language, and storytelling from the South.
Authors interested in contributing are requested to demonstrate through a coherent analysis how the space example in their article is used, to comment on the accuracy of the portrayal (if relevant), and to provide an assessment of the objective of that particular depiction of space, and what makes it insightful. If multiple examples are used, a unifying theme should be provided.
