AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Barcan and Buchanan define what they mean by 'space'. They quote a number of philosophers and artists and state that the best way to imagine the concept of space might be 'when we cease to ask what space represents and instead inquire into what it does'. The critical essays in the collection are recognised as being 'within the transdisciplinary space of Australian Cultural Studies' and that 'the biological, geological, material world around us is discursively imagined, understood and produced, and that even our bodily perception and experience of it does not occur outside of culture and history'.
