Part of the Critical Human Geography book series (CHG)


Those in the ‘discipline’ of geography have for long had a difficult relation to the notion of ‘space’ and ‘the spatial’. There has been much head-scratching, much theorising, much changing of mind. Sometimes the notion has been clasped whole-heartedly as the only claimable distinguishing characteristic within the academic division of labour. Sometimes it has been spurned as necessarily fetishised. There have also, along with these switchbacks, been major shifts in the way in which ‘space/the spatial’ was itself to be conceived.
