The social relations of difference – from race and class to gender and inequality – is at the heart of the concept of social geography and this Handbook reconsiders and redirects research in the discipline while examining the changing ideas of individuals and their relationship with structures of power. Organized into five sections, The SAGE Handbook of Social Geographies maps out the ′connections′ anchored in social geography.

About the Author:

In addition to a research career spanning more than 20 years, Professor Smith is experienced in research management, research strategy, and research assessment of all kinds. She has contributed to the work of the ESRC (Research Grants Board, Professorial Fellowships Commissioning Panel, Public Services Programme Commissioning Panel), HEFCE (as a panel member in the 2001 and 2008 Research Assessment Exercises), the Leverhulme Trust (Philip Leverhulme Prize panel), and to research development and monitoring in HEIs within and beyond the UK. She also has a wide-ranging teaching and examining portfolio, at all levels, in a variety of topics.

Born in Northumberland and brought up in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, I have lived in the North East for most of my life. I completed my first degree in geography at Lancaster University and PhD at the University of Edinburgh, then worked as a lecturer in geography at Northumbria University before moving to Durham in 2000. Here, I teach at undergraduate level, supervise PhD students, and am Co-Director of the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action. I′m a social geographer whose research is informed by feminist and participatory theory and practice. I work on a range of issues around fear, violence and community safety; emotions and geopolitics; and participatory practice, politics, theory and activism. My research, teaching and public engagement activities are underpinned by a commitment to social justice. Recently I′ve worked on a number of participatory action research projects in the North East, with partners including refugee-led organisations, youth groups, Rivers Trusts and survivors of violence. As well as locating my own research and some training and teaching locally outside the University, I am involved in a number of initiatives to encourage two-way research collaborations, including the Centre for Social Justice and Community Action which develops and supports theory and practice around participatory action research at local, national and international levels. I′m also interested in the challenges that the idea of work life balance presents for academic business and cultures, and in supporting fairer institutional policies and practices for fractional, flexible and non-traditional workers.

Review:

With clarity and confidence, this vibrant volume summons up ′the social′ in Geography in ways that will excite students and scholars alike. Here the social is populated not only by society, but by culture, nature, economy and politics. It proliferates and pulses through diverse domains of geographic analysis and concern. The Handbook of Social Geography is a rich resource that maps a field and moves it on
Kay Anderson
University of Western Sydney

This is a remarkable collection, full of intellectual gems. It not only summarises the field of social geography, and restates its importance, but also produces a manifesto for how the field should look in the future
Nigel Thrift
Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick

The book aims to be accessible to students and specialists alike. Its success lies in

emphasizing the crossovers between geography and social studies. The good editorial work is evident and the participating contributors are well-established scholars in their respective fields
Miron M. Denan
Geography Research Forum

An excellent handbook that will attract a diversity of readers. It will inspire undergraduate/postgraduate students and stimulate lecturers/researchers interested in the complexity and diversity of the social realm. On the otherhand, the book will also satisfy the curiosity of anyone with an interest in issues of social difference, social economies, well-being and social justice...I strongly recommend the Sage Handbook of Social Geography because its creative and selective approach invites reflection curiosity and eagerness to explore the constitution and multidimensional nature of the social in ways that move beyond the politics of identity and resistance. As the first of its kind in the sub-discipline, it is a book that is enjoyable to read and will definitely add value to a personal or library collection
Michele Lobo
New Zealand Geographer

This will be an essential resource for academics, researchers, practitioners and postgraduates across human geography. Seller Inventory # AAX9781412935593
