About this Unit
This unit explores the relevance and application of the ‘spatial turn’ across social sciences and humanities disciplines. It examines various ways of thinking spatially, theorizing processes that shape urban space, and researching in place. Through concrete engagements with Sydney as a living laboratory it explores how the spatial turn adds to and counters dominant ways of thinking that privilege temporality or deep structure. Space, Place and the Field is analysed at varying scales, including from bodies to species, streets to cities, interpersonal to macro politics, drawing on the wealth of social, cultural, economic and environmental studies of Sydney.
