Notes

Abstract: A Citrus Place concerns textual modes for creating sense of place and explores specifically the ways in which the orange informs a reader's imagination of Florida. The implications of this project offer a comparison of different viewpoints ofthe fruit as symbol to the state, and thereby infers the different imagined Floridas. My first chapter discusses two literary elements, symbol and narrative, as forms of knowledge that establish a reader's sense of place. My second chapter, an outline of the aesthetic history of oranges in Florida, investigates how this symbol draws a parallel with the state's emergence. The third chapter is a creative non-fiction account of what being a Floridian means to the author. Specifically, the last chapter attempts to apply the narrative function outlined in the first chapter to a collaboration with Ben Tillett, Floridian and citrus grower. The IRB approved Research with Ben Tillett was conducted through interviews at his business, The Citrus Place, and in his grove using an audio recorder and written transcription. As a whole, this project seeks to unravel the familiar, mundane citrus crop and present a newfangled discussion of its many meanings.
