      Title

      Spatial Ecologies : Urban Sites, State and World-space in French Critical Theory.

      Summary
      • "Spatial Ecologies" takes a new look at the "spatial turn" in French cultural and critical theory since 1968. Verena Andermatt Conley examines how Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, Jean Baudrillard, Marc Auge, Paul Virilio, Bruno Latour and Etienne Balibar reconsider the experience of space in the midst of considerable political and economic turmoil. The book considers why French critical theorists turned away from questions of time and looked instead toward questions of space. It asks what writing about space can tell us about life in late capitalism. Conley links this question to the problematic of habitality, taking us back to Heidegger and showing how it informs much of French theory. Building on the author's acclaimed earlier study Ecopolitics, Spatial Ecologies argues, through the voices of the authors taken up the eight chapters, for recognition of the virtue of spatial theory and its pragmatic applications in the global milieu. It will be required reading for scholars of literary and cultural theory, and twentieth- and twenty-first century French culture.
      • Review: This is a working of wide-ranging and deep scholarship which brings together a range of important French thinkers for the first time within a critical, comparative argument. Spatial Ecologies makes a passionate and lucidly argued case for a renewed ecological thinking and a transformative critical practice. -- Dr Ian James Spatial Ecologies is a tour de force analysis of all the major theorists/theories of space/spatiality in the contemporary era. It will become the new benchmark for work on space in critical and cultural theory. -- Professor Ian Buchanan A novel explanation by a perceptive critic, wherein Conley ponders the 'spatial turn' in French critical theory from 1968 to 2012, and from Henri Lefebvre and Paul Virilio to Etienne Balibar. Assessing the postmodern experience of space and politics, economics and time, this book is an extraordinary reflection on questions of space in the epoch of late capitalism. -- John Armitage Times Higher Education, What Are You Reading Section 20120830 The latest book by Verena Andermatt Conley, renowned feminist scholar and pioneering ecocritic, follows the "spatial turn" of French thought in the wake of May 1968 in order to trace how space "can now be appreciated for its ecological implications" (1). Conley's book has two separate aspects. First, it is a guide to French spatial theory, which will prove useful for those new to the field or for those, especially in English departments, who are familiar with one or two works of these theorists but who lack the historical and cultural context of French thought since the 1960s. But it is also a re- reading of these texts in light of today's pressing ecological concerns with an eye to finding new critical tools that could build habitable spaces and spaces for resistance. Conley's book is a success on both accounts- she presents a group of notably diverse and difficult thinkers in a clear and engaging way that is accessible to the uninitiated, while also providing valuable insight for those of us who have been immersed in French spatial theory. The nine French spatial theorists presented here (Lefebvre, Certeau, Baudrillard, Auge, Virilio, Deleuze and Guattari, Latour, and Balibar) are more or less familiar to English- speaking audiences (Bruno Latour perhaps overly so, Marc Auge not nearly enough). Conley shows the richness of spatial thinking in France, and also provides glimpses of an even wider fi eld of spatial thinking in France, from Henri Bergson to Gaston Bachelard, Jean- Paul Sartre, Louis Marin, Georges Perec, Helene Cixous, Michel Serres, Jacques Ranciere, Claude Levi- Strauss, and Michel Foucault. She carefully presents the thought of each of her authors in his or her own terms, with the result that complex notions of space, the city, the West, and globalization are crafted anew in each chapter. Space means something different for each of these thinkers; separating and juxtaposing the diverging formulations brings out the richness of the term. Each theorist redefines, reinvents, and distorts concepts that exist within the specific ecosystem of French thought, and that might seem opaque to English speakers without Conley's work of translation and interpretation. Chapters on catastrophic or paranoid thinkers (Virilio, Baudrillard) are Mixed with more practical thinkers (Balibar, Certeau), a structuring device that allows the reader to see how others can productively appropriate critical tools invented by even the most pessimistic of writers. Virilio's infl uence on Deleuze and Guattari, Balibar's incorporation and critique of Lefebvre and Deleuze and Guattari, the friendships forged between Baudrillard, Auge and Virilio, all constitute essential details that contextualize what amounts to thirty or more years of dialogue. Th e only one to seem slightly out of place is Latour, whose media presence and relative lack of interaction with the other writers studied in the book makes of him a useful insider/outsider precisely because his new perspectives prove to be less convincing. Conley begins with Henri Lefebvre, a writer whose work reflects the changing spatial realities in France from World War II through the end of the trente glorieuses. His seminal work, La Production de l'espace from 1974, inaugurates the search in France for the creation of habitable spaces in a world pulverized by capitalism. Conley follows with a chapter on Michel de Certeau, "as a foil and complement to Lefebvre" (28), who argues for the ability of the ordinary man to refashion space in the everyday. Space becomes a practice opposed to "proper places." To deepen and illustrate Certeau's argument, Conley evokes the work of novelist, politician, and sociologist Azouz Begag, which describes the immigrant's experience and subsequent invention of space in France. Juxtaposed to the art of spatial practice of Certeau, chapter three focuses on Jean Baudrillard's conception of media spaces, spaces of control that have substituted simulacra for the real. While Baudrillard uncovers dangerous tendencies in the contemporary media sphere, Conley is critical of his theoretical overreaching, especially evident in his idiosyncratic vision of "America" (59). Chapter four studies Marc Auge, whom Conley calls "Th e Anthropologist- Painter of Postmodern Life" (62). Auge's work on the Parisian metro and especially his concept of the "non- place" describe new challenges but also new possibilities for identity within what he calls supermodernity. Paul Virilio's thought, outlined in chapter five, exposes the disastrous effects of speed on democracy, art, and the body. The acceleration of information technologies has shrunk space and time, confining our range of motion, our ability to act in the world. Conley segues from Virilio's concept of "deterritorialization" to Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari's appropriation and elaboration of the term in chapter six. Deleuze and Guattari's thinking on space is the richest of the authors studied in this book, with concepts from their Mille plateaux such as nomadism, the rhizome, smooth space, and the plateau greatly expanding the spatial critic's toolbox. As Conley points out, many of their concepts might be coopted in the new context of global capitalism, but they never stopped adapting their thinking to new contexts. Conley highlights Guattari's late work, The Three Ecologies from 1989, and the need for an "ecosophy." The last two chapters juxtapose Bruno Latour and Etienne Balibar as two theorists who propose ways of negotiating space "in a world with waning nation- states and striated city- states" (111). Latour rejects ways of thinking inherited from modernism, proposing a "non- modernism" that would free us from reductive concepts and allow us to invent new spaces within machinic networks. Instead of conceiving networks as a transfer of information, Latour proposes we think in terms of transformation. Conley remains skeptical of Latour's conclusions, however, since he seems blind to questions of wealth, privilege, and citizenship. Etienne Balibar's work argues for a new conception of citizenship and subjectivity aft er decolonization and globalization. Balibar envisions the creation of new, fi ctional spaces and calls for a new type of intellectual who can translate concerns between competing universalisms. Conley calls her book an open- ended sequel to her earlier Ecopolitics: The Environment in Poststructuralist Th ought (New York: Routledge, 1997), which traced the birth of ecology in poststructuralism. Spatial Ecologies deals with a paradox of sorts. Post- '68 thought was focused on the state as a site of repression, and pushed for new spaces of contention for collective action. However, the acceleration of a globalized economy has led to a weakened nation- state and the loss of spaces for resistance, leading to creative shifts and new alliances in French thought. All the thinkers of the book share similar experiences of the loss of space, all point to similar causes, all propose the creation of new spaces. But Conley conveys the incredible diversity of conceptual responses to our new reality- given the enormity of the challenges we face, we will need all of these critical tools. -- Patrick M. Bray French Forum 38.3 2013

      Summary
      • The provision of urban parks, recreation grounds and other green spaces can make a vital contribution to the quality of urban life and to the achievement of a range of Government objectives in relation to improved health, sustainable neighbourhood renewal and community cohesion, especially in more deprived areas. This NAO report examines the effectiveness of national policy initiatives on green space issues, focusing on progress made to assess the quality of urban green spaces, to improve financial management procedures, and to protect and enhance provision through the planning system. Overall, the report finds that the decline in quality of urban green spaces has been halted in most areas, with signs of recovery in many places. Greater priority for green space investment and new sources of funds from central government and the lottery have enabled local authorities and other public bodies, working in partnership with local communities, to bring about the refurbishment and renewal of many green spaces. However, surveys show that there is a wide variation between urban local authorities, and improvements need to be in relation to the sharing and application of good practice on green space management.

      Summary
      • This book presents a cross-cultural approach to the study of urban space. Essays written by major contributors in contemporary urban studies provide a range of case studies from Asia, Latin America, North America, and Europe to address important questions about space and power, processes of change, aesthetics and attitudes toward space, and social divisions expressed through urban life. The essays fall into three interlocking sections: conceptual and linguistic approaches to urban space; visual and social examinations of world cities; and policy examinations of spatial analyses.

      • This book presents a cross-cultural approach to the study of urban space. Essays written by major contributors in contemporary urban studies provide a range of case studies from Asia, Latin America, North America, and Europe to address important questions about space and power, processes of change, aesthetics and attitudes toward space, and social divisions expressed through urban life. The essays fall into three interlocking sections: conceptual and linguistic approaches to urban space; visual and social examinations of world cities; and policy examinations of spatial analyses. Together with the jointly compiled bibliography, this collection of essays is designed to stimulate comparative debate and identify new areas for urban research. Essays contrast empty space in Barcelona and Savannah, explore the concept of healthy and unhealthy urban environments in the classical writings and in modern-day Vienna, and develop a model of space for Shanghai from the point of view of privacy. The subcultural ethos characterizing Tokyo and the castle as a symbol for the community in Japan are two more essay topics. The plaza in Spanish-American towns, the outdoor spaces in Italy (balcony, street, courtyard), and the school in Honduras are sites for socio-cultural analyses in three more essays. The last group of essays focus on discourses in urban planning, especially the responses of people to the growth, marketing, and decay of residential places. African-American neighborhoods and waterfront development provide examples for this section. These essays in their theoretical and geographical breadth make significant strides in defining the cultural meaning of urban space. They will be read with interest by city planners, ecologists, and other social scientists involved in finding human solutions to the metropolitan environment.

      Race and Urban Space in American Culture

      Published
      • Edinburgh University Press
      ISBN
      • 0748609520
      • 0748609695
      Summary
      • This innovative book looks at representations of ethnic and racial identities in relation to the development of urban culture in postindustrialised American cities. The concept of 'urban space' organises the detailed illustration of a series of themes which structure chapters on white paranoia and urban decline; memories of urban passage; the racialised underclass; urban crime and justice; and globalisation and citizenship. The book focuses on a range of literary and visual forms including novels, journalism, films (narrative and documentary) and photography to examine the relationship between race and representation in the production of urban space. Texts analysed include writings by Tom Wolfe (The Bonfire of the Vanities), Toni Morrison (Jazz), John Edgar Wildeman (Philadelphia Fire) and Walter Mosley (Devil in a Blue Dress). Films covered include Falling Down, Strange Days, Hoop Dreams and Clockers. Provocative and absorbing, this interdisciplinary treatment of urban representations engages contemporary theoretical and sociological debates about race and the city. Issues of space and spatiality in representations of the city are explored and the author shows how expressive forms of literary and visual representation interact with broader productions of urban space.

His book clearly fills a gap by examining how popular narratives have represented the inner-city ghetto and how these images shape our perspectives of race and urban life.

      Summary
      • Many cities in different parts of the world have experienced a fundamental economic, cultural and social transformation in recent decades. This volume addresses the global processes of urban transformation empirically and theoretically in a number of case studies of particular cities. The papers cover a range of research in terms of space, time and aspects of urban reality. Some case studies focus on urban life in the context of economic and social structure, or urban renewal in the context of national and local politics. Others deal more specifically with the interrelations between culture, economy and space. The academic focus is variously sociology, political science, economy, geography and architecture. The contributions are divided into three sections. In the first section the question of global and long-term historical transformation of cities and urban space is addressed. The second section contains case studies of symbolic and cultural dimensions or urban change in particular cities. The third section includes papers on how these kinds of transformations articulate social power, conflicts of interests and policy interventions. This part of the book ends with a chapter in which an attempt is made to draw together some of the threads from previous chapters in a proposed agenda for comparative research into the dynamics of power in cases of urban development and renewal.
