This book demonstrates the value of ethnographic theory and methods
in understanding space and place, and considers how
ethnographically-based spatial analyses can yield insight into
prejudices, inequalities and social exclusion as well as offering
people the means for understanding the places where they live,
work, shop and socialize. In developing the concept of spatializing
culture, Setha Low draws on over twenty years of research to
examine social production, social construction, embodied,
discursive, emotive and affective, as well as translocal
approaches. A global range of fieldwork examples are employed
throughout the text to highlight not just the theoretical
development of the idea of spatializing culture, but how it can be
used in undertaking ethnographies of space and place. The volume
will be valuable for students and scholars from a number of
disciplines who are interested in the study of culture through the
lens of space and place.
