Place Space and Identity

Name: Doreen Massey, BA (Oxon), MA

Position in Faculty: Professor of Geography

Research interests I have long-term interests in various aspects of the theorization of 'space' and 'place'. These interests range through globalization (critique of), regional uneven development, the reconceptualization of place … and from the philosophical and largely conceptual through to the directly political.

  • I co-founded and now co-edit Soundings: a journal of politics and culture.

Place Space Identity

‘No longer do we think of place or region or nation as simply bounded territories with essential external characteristics which somehow grew out of the soil. Rather we (or many of us) now lay stress on understanding the identity of place as the product of its relations with elsewhere.’

Doreen Massey, 2001

‘Really thinking spatially means looking out beyond ourselves; a recognition of others.’

Doreen Massey, 2002

Drawing maps helps us to

  • communicate spatially from one person to another

  • represent things graphically and diagrammatically

  • appreciate the quality of maps drawn by others

  • appreciate the relationships between places on the ground

Place Space and Identity

‘Places are meeting places of different people, different groups, different ethnicities. In human terms they are the entanglement, the meeting up, of different histories many of them without previous connection to others.’
