Description :
The paper addresses the relationships between representation and place as social processes by examining the blurring of Cicely, the Alaskan town in the television show Northern Exposure, and Roslyn, the town in Washington State where outdoors scenes of Northern Exposure are shot. The production of place-images by the entertainment industry has material repercussions for the residents of places. The relationship between R. and C. helps advance an epistemology of place.
