essay “Placeless Places: Resolving the Paradox of Foucault’s Heterotopia” (2017).Dis-
regarding Foucault’s later definition of heterotopia in favour of the earlier French
original transcript of Foucault’s radio talk on the concept, Knight argues that het-
erotopia was never meant to be applied to real, tangible spaces (Real Places 21). In-
stead, he proposes to conceive of heterotopias exclusively as “literary motifs” (ibid.

, spectacle and psychasthenia concurred in drawing up a synthetic
concept of urban mentality. This model allows to both scrutinise the idiosyncrasy of the
city in general and transfer the analysis of mentality to other metropolises worldwide.
While urban-generic structures of thinking, imagining, feeling and acting are shown to be
based on a configuration of eight predominant ambivalences, the urban-specific factors
of influence are drawn from theories of urban semantics. The categories developed here
served as a major focus for the literaryanalysis. Methodologically, this
analysis to select texts in which narrators are able to break the
horizon of expectations. That concerns fiction constructed for establishing a fer-
tile and valuable dialogue with the reader, implying, if possible, interesting phil-
osophical, cultural, and ethical reflections. The literaryanalysis of the ideologi-
cal component depends on its visibility in the text. In order to disambiguate each
relevant term in the interpretation, we should take a logical and reasonable path:
the principle of following an isotopic interpretation making sense built on the
conspiracy theories and intensifies the literaryanalysis of their
devastating results, but at the same time asks if there is something positive we
can gain from their impact. In short: Is there a benign conspiracy, a conspiracy
that could lead to something that is ultimately good?
Examples from these two texts will help me to show how conspiracy theories
played a role in the process of Yugoslavia’s destruction and became extremely
powerful as well how they managed to substitute the foundation of society,
grounded on the socialist belief in the strength of science

property of discourse of diverse sorts, whose literariness – its narrative, rhetorical, performative
qualities – can be studied by what were hitherto methods of literaryanalysis. And the values
that are often taken for granted in literary reading of non-literary materials are frequently li-
terary values: concreteness, vividness, immediacy, paradoxical complexities” (Culler 2007: 18).

connects the latter to sociological subjects and approaches. For a literaryanalysis that wants to concern itself with the relationship between a text’s
modes of aesthetic representation and what it actually represents (actual

social matters, groups of people, politics, etc.), such an approach offers
the necessary tool to adequately describe a text’s situatedness within the
cultural and social conditions from which it emerges. It avoids the risk of
reducing not only the text to a mere illustration of sociological findings and
linguistic texts to an increased attention to mul-
timodal ones. This includes an attention to auditory, visual, and spatial prop-
erties and modes of perception and transmission as well as to physical texts.
Increasingly, aesthetic and cultural interrogations of the law proceed via an
emphasis on figuration and visualization and medium specificity rather than
through the exclusive analysis of verbal discourse, including the comparison of
interpretive strategies in legal and literaryanalysis. As Lief Dahlberg writes: “in
order to properly understand law […] one has
presence destabilizes the picaresque composition; most scholars would deduce
that it should be seen as representative of the genre’s decline in Spain’s literary
history, an assumption, however, that has yet to be verified.
La Garduña de Sevilla’s formal and thematic characteristics do not suit the
normative core in contemporary designs of gender and the picaresque. As a mat-
ter of course, this is the reason why we should be interested in it. From La Gar-
duña de Sevilla emerges a (meta) literaryanalysis a lot of modern scholars have
