Spaces of Justice : Peripheries, Passages, Appropriations (Hardcover)
about this item
This book offers a unique collection of perspectives that together pursue deeper theoretical connections between space and justice than much current work within legal geography. Drawing on theoretical influences that include Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Henri Lefebvre, Gillian Rose, Elias Canetti, Doreen Massey, Antonio Negri and Yan Thomas, the contributors to this book conduct a series of jurisprudential, aesthetic and political inquiries into ‘just’ modes of occupying space, and the ways in which space comes under the sign of law. Bringing together leading scholars and practitioners in the field of law with theorists from other disciplines, Spaces of Justice articulates important connections between law and architectural theory, the creative arts, geography and cultural studies. It will, then, be of considerable interest to anyone within these disciplines concerned with the normative dimensions of law’s ‘spatial turn’.
