Sensory Witnessing and Railway Shock

Disorders of Vision and Experience

This chapter probes the tellability of the train journey's somatic traumas based on perspectives from cultural studies of witnessing, the body, and the senses.

The model of sensory witnessing that I identify with train journeys is also applicable to other intense spatial experiences of forced closeness, such as in the trenches of World War I, bomb shelters, and living in underground sewers, among countless others.
