Doreen Massey : Critical Dialogues (Hardcover)
about this item
Doreen Massey (1944-2016) was one of the most influential geographers of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Her ideas on space, region, identity, ethics, and capital transformed the field itself, while also attracting a wide audience in planning, political economy, cultural studies, gender studies, and beyond.These specially commissioned essays, many from some of Massey's long-time interlocutors and collaborators, interrogate both the generative sources and the potential of Massey's remarkably influential oeuvre. They provide readers with an unparalleled assessment of the political and social context that gave rise to many of Massey's key ideas and how they subsequently travelled, were translated and transformed, both within and outside of academia. Looking forward, rather than merely backward, the collection also highlights some of the diverse ways in which Massey's formulations and frameworks provide a basis for new interventions in contemporary debates over immigration, financialization, macroeconomic crises, political engagement beyond academia, North–South development cooperation, and much more. The collection stands as a testament to the continuing relevance of Massey's work across a wide range of fields.
