Announcing the launch of The People, Place, & Space Reader!

People, place and space reader R4We are excited to announce the launch of the website, PeoplePlaceSpace.org, for the forthcoming The People, Place, & Space Reader, edited by Jen Jack Gieseking and William Mangold, with Cindi Katz, Setha Low, and Susan Saegert. The People, Place, and Space Reader includes both classic writings and contemporary research, connecting  scholarship across disciplines, periods, and locations to make sense of  the ways we shape and inhabit our world. Essays from the editors  introduce the texts and outline key issues surrounding each topic.

Many academic disciplines have taken a spatial turn in recent years, and environmental crisis is on everybody’s lips, but all too often students, scholars, and practitioners do not know where to go to read about the issues that spark their imaginations. The People, Place, and Space Reader provides a broad, theoretically informed introduction and brings together key texts from a variety of disciplines that focus on environment, space, and place as they relate to both the mundane and the spectacular in everyday lives. As interdisciplinary studies proliferate dramatically and the boundaries between area studies, cultural studies, urban studies, and environmental studies become more porous, this compendium of readings on space and place is relevant to an increasing number of students in a wide variety of fields. This reader provides the integrated analytical tools and imaginative theories that will prod an individual from any discipline to think harder and reach farther on the many issues raised by the human environment.

The companion website, PeoplePlaceSpace.org, provides additional reading lists covering a broad range of issues. An essential resource for students of urban studies, geography, design, sociology, and anyone with an interest in the environment, this volume presents the most dynamic and critical understanding of space and place available.
