Product Description

Review

'Rob Shields provides here an immensely sophisticated and detailed examination of the topological turn. He has been examining these issues for some decades and this book will surely become the standard work on cultural and spatial topology' (John Urry 2013-07-19)

Spatial Questions provides one of the most complete accounts in the recent literature engaging with topology. The reader might be deceived by the apparently slim format, which nevertheless packs material that could easily inform several volumes on the topic. Spatial Questions is a welcome contribution to spatial theory and, given the prominence of the topic nowadays, as well as the hype built around the topological over the past years, the book might equally appeal to geographers and to a broader audience within the social sciences. (Iulian Barba-Lata, Wageningen University)

Spatial Questions: Cultural Topologies and Social Spatialisation provides an important contribution to the study of topology at large and to those who engage with human geography in particular, coinciding with recent topological discussions in such journals as Progress in Human Geography (2014), Theory, Culture & Society (2012) and Dialogues in Human Geography (2011). As in his previous writings, Shields’ provides a vivid and clear discussion, accessible to a wide range of readers from various disciplines. These undoubtedly will find the call for a ‘topological turn’ valuable and thought provoking. (Yuval Karplus, Independent researcher)

About the Author

Rob Shields is Henry Marshall Tory Chair and Professor in the Departments of Sociology and of Art and Design. Previously he was Professor of Sociology and past Director of the Institute of Interdisciplinary Studies at Carleton University.

His focus has been urban cultural studies, particularly the social use and meanings of the built environment, urban spaces and regions, including tourist destinations, local identities, and the impact of changing spatializations on cultural identities. This intellectual project has been extended through a peer-reviewed journal Space and Culture (SAGE) founded in 1997.

He is the author of Lefebvre, Love and Struggle (Routledge, 1998), which is a widely cited classic in the field. He's also authored or edited, among others, Ecologies of Affect (WLUP, 2011), What Is A City? Rethinking the Urban After Hurricane Katrina (UGP, 2008), The Virtual (Routledge, 2002), Places on the Margin and Lifestyle Shopping (both Routledge, 1992).
