About this title

Synopsis:

Spatial Justice and Diaspora brings the concept of spatial justice into conversation with empirical studies of racism and displacement, challenging and extending critical discussions of place, socio-spatiality, identities, and the juridico-political order. The volume brings together work exploring the conceptual and practical meaning of diaspora through a broad range of grounded studies, ranging from Palestinian street protest in Chile, to poetry written in Guantanamo Bay, to everyday practices of Ethiopian homemaking in Sweden. In so doing, it adds to theoretical explorations of spatial justice a keen attentiveness to lived experiences of the local, while also questioning any romanticized or essentialist reading of diaspora. Bringing to the fore innovative interdisciplinary scholarship, Spatial Justice and Diaspora offers a new critical intervention at the intersection of these fields.

Review:

'An important contribution to the emerging literature on diasporic spatialities and social justice. Contains material which represents critical engagement at its best. Should be of interest to scholars and practitioners alike.' - Avtar Brah (Professor Emerita of Sociology, Birkbeck College) 'It is ... our responsibility to make an intervention in space making and diasporic practices, and help render them more just. This volume is a valuable contribution to that wider struggle. It reflects genuine conceptual innovation in the fields of spatial justice and diaspora, and contributes to an understanding which is both transformative and productive.' - Parvathi Raman SOAS Centre for Migration and Diaspora Studies
