The Journey · Place · Narrative Lab is based at Plymouth University, UK #JPN SOCIAL MEDIA

JPN aims to:
  • Draw on disciplines and methodologies represented by the fusion of social sciences, language, literature and cultural studies, geography, history and business and management science.
  • Embrace emerging technologies for knowledge creation and open access, including enhanced digital publishing to reach policy makers in reduced time frames and to enrich university teaching and learning practices (networks, mobile and wearable, collaborative, Web 2.0) .
  • Explore narrative, film and literary texts and the discourses surrounding the formation of place knowledge, experience and value creation. This includes the written space and the practices used to share experiences and enjoyment of place and the aesthetic representation of territory.
  • Examine place branding, destination image and place-making through research-based and professionalised approaches to travel and research writing for production and impact.
  • Create a productive and friendly research culture for the support of postgraduate researchers and staff, thus extending our Research Masters and PhD supervisions.
  • Maintain an international dialogue in the languages we teach at Plymouth, for example English, French, German, Mandarin and Spanish, to situate and better communicate our study and teaching. FR : voyage · lieu · récit
