Geographies of Loss
This chapter explores how the catastrophic placemaking of Lemuria results in the production of fabulous geographies of loss. The ocean is a source of both fantasy and fear to Lemuria's place-makers, although the density of these varies across the different labors of loss. It is in Tamil India that the ocean takes on a life of its own, as it emerges as the all-powerful and all-consuming villain in a series of catastrophic encounters between nature and culture, between water and man.
