Space, Place, and Community Identity: Toward a Performative Conceptualization of Space and Place.

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

An interest in the concept of space and place are increasing within sociology. Addressing the need for further theoretical development, I contribute to this conversation by introducing a performative conceptualization of space and place that attempts to circumvent the limitations of spatial and socially deterministic approaches. Within a performative framework, my argument recognizes boundaries and meanings of space and place are always contestable, and subject to redefinition. What is considered space or place in the present does not mean they will retain the same meaning over time. I illustrate this approach through an exploration of two arts-based community projects: The Heidelberg Project in Detroit, and Project Row Houses in Houston.
