View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

Through ethnographical cases, this book examines the ways in which social groups position themselves between cultures, states, moralities, and local/state authorities, creating opportunities for agency. Alternative spaces designate in-between spaces rather than oppositional structures and are both inside and outside their constituent elements.

Review:

"In this exciting volume Esther Fihl and Jens Dahl have brought together a group of collaborators to grapple with questions of identity, place, and power in the contemporary world. In developing the concept of alternative spaces the authors help us conceptualize how people around the world are shaping their lives in relation to but without being dictated by nation-states, enduring cultural and religious forms, and new technologies. Ranging from indigenous rights activists in the United Nations to caste councils in South India, from the political struggles of Mexican migrants in the United States to the position of Christians in Syria, and from racecourse gambling in India to the Danish seamen's church in Singapore, each contributor offers a wide-ranging and unique perspective on how groups of people are shaping more or less stable alternative spaces in the wake of globalization. Most importantly, A Comparative Ethnography of Alternative Spaces rescales ethnographic comparison itself and thus offer a new window into how social life is organized." - Johan Lindquist, Associate Professor, Social Anthropology, Stockholm University

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 266 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.Many people seek to carve out a space for themselves independently of the existing social and political realities of which they are a part. Through a range of ethnographical cases, the book addresses the innovative and complex ways in which social groups show the ability to position themselves between cultures, states, moralities, or local communities and state authorities, thus creating new opportunities for agency in the modern world. As an analytical term, alternative spaces designate in-between spaces rather than oppositional structures and are as such both inside and outside their constituent elements. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781137299536
