This astonishing book presents a distinctive approach to the politics of everyday life. Ranging across a variety of spaces in which politics and the political unfold, it questions what is meant by perception, representation and practice, with the aim of valuing the fugitive practices that exist on the margins of the known. It revolves around three key functions. It: introduces the rather dispersed discussion of non-representational theory to a wider audience provides the basis for an experimental rather than a representational approach to the social sciences and humanities begins the task of constructing a different kind of political genre. A groundbreaking and comprehensive introduction to this key topic, Thrift’s outstanding work brings together further writings from a body of work that has come to be known as non-representational theory. This noteworthy book makes a significant contribution to the literature in this area and is essential reading for researchers and postgraduates in the fields of social theory, sociology, geography, anthropology and cultural studies.

Als Teil eines neu entstehenden Forschungsfeldes, das sich aus einer kulturellen Perspektive mit dem Phänomen des Klimawandels auseinandersetzt, demonstriert dieses Buch anhand eines ethnographischen Fallbeispiels, wie ein holistisches Verständnis des globalen Klimawandels aus einem lokalspezifischen Kontext heraus möglich ist. Thomas Friedrich erforschte auf der philippinischen Insel Palawan, wie die lokale Bevölkerung das wissenschaftliche Wissen über den Klimawandel mit ihrem ökologischen Wissen und ihren Wetter- und Umwelterfahrungen kognitiv in Einklang bringt. Ohne die vielfältigen Wechselwirkungen mit der globalen und nationalen Ebene auszublenden, analysiert er unter Zuhilfenahme unterschiedlicher Methoden die lokalen Rezeptionsprozesse und veranschaulicht diese anhand ausgewählter Praxisbeispiele.

Die Kultursoziologie ist zu einem Brennpunkt der theoretischen und empirischen Öffnung der Soziologie geworden. Der Band lotet in einer Reihe von Studien die Potenziale einer solchen kulturwissenschaftlichen Neuorientierung der Soziologie aus. Mehrere Fragen stehen dabei im Mittelpunkt: Was kann das Konzept der Kultur als Beobachtungskategorie leisten? Inwiefern spielen »soziale Praktiken« für eine solche Kultursoziologie eine besondere Rolle? Wie lassen sich Subjektivierung und Identität im Rahmen einer Kultursoziologie der Moderne unter die Lupe nehmen? Welche Bedeutung erhält hier das Ästhetische? Schließlich: Wie kann die Kultursoziologie vom Poststrukturalismus profitieren?

Over the past ten to fifteen years there has emerged an increasing concern with mobility in the social sciences and humanities. In Mobility, Space and Culture, Peter Merriman provides an important and timely contribution to the mobilities turn in the social sciences, encouraging academics to rethink the relationship between movement, embodied practices, space and place. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach, drawing upon theoretical and empirical work from across the social sciences and humanities to provide a critical evaluation of the relationship between 'mobility' and 'place'/'site', reformulating places as in process, open, and dynamic spatial formations. Merriman draws upon post-structuralist writings on space, practice and society to demonstrate how movement is not simply practised or experienced in relation to space and time, but gives rise to rhythms, forces, atmospheres, affects and materialities which are often more crucial to embodied apprehensions of events than sensibilities of spatiality and temporality. He draws upon detailed empirical research on experiences of, and social reactions to, driving in late Victorian and Edwardian Britain to trace how the motor-car became associated with sensations of movement-space and enmeshed with debates about embodiment, health, visuality, gender and politics. The book will be essential reading for undergraduates and postgraduates studying mobility in sociology, geography, cultural studies, politics, transport studies, and history.

Das Werk zeigt, dass Pädagoginnen und Pädagogen spurensuchende Forscher und forschende Spurensucher zugleich sind – je nachdem, aus welcher Perspektive sie ihren Blick fokussieren.
