The Production of Space in the Context of Environmental and Infrastructural Governance – Teil 1
Art:
Parallele Fachsitzungen (FS)

Space is both socially constructed and a fundamental component of the social structuring of reality. Processes of spatial production must be placed centre stage in our accounts of social practices, governance and societal change. This session examines processes of spatial production in the governance of infrastructures and the environment. Through theoretically-informed case studies we seek to critically examine the production of space and its role in the regulation of society-environment  / nature-culture relations.
