ANTH2655 - The Social Production of Space

Semester 1, 2011  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Yasmine Musharbash

Description

Space/place appears in anthropology as both a product of historically specific social practice and as an irreducible dimension of any social formation. This theoretical tension will be explored through examination of such themes as: the contradiction between the global as abstract space and the local as qualitatively distinct place; struggles over the definition and control of space; space/time as an aspect of any world; centre/periphery and inside/outside as pervasive tropes of social analysis.
