II SPATIAL LYRICISM A new lyricism: some early thoughts on linguistic disobedience originally addressed to Marjorie Perloff Part 1 The lyric is the basis of all my poetry, but its signature is blurred and reconstituted. I consider myself a linguistic lyricist, a ‘new lyricist’, or a lyrical hybridiser. A deconstructive lyricist. As to the question of the unified self, I have been many people in my life – I remember them all, though the memories are tenuous. I think an ethics and a politics binds these selves together – though I am probably wrong. The error in

integrate as a result of austerity measures ( Georgiou, 2019 ). In the absence of welfare support, refugees increasingly participate in projects that aim to promote digital forms of labour and entrepreneurship ( Udwan et al. , 2020 ), which constitute a central aspect of neoliberalism. In this study, we draw on spatial imaginaries frameworks to advance the theoretical understanding of power differentials that are embodied in the use of technologies to

15  Norman Fainstein and Susan S. Fainstein The spatial dimension of poverty Few would dispute that the spatial concentration of poverty reinforces constraints that keep people in deprivation. Furthermore, many analysts have determined that spatial segregation is increasing (see e.g. Musterd et al. 2016; Logan 2013). A debate, however, exists about its underlying causes. The Chicago School, which introduced spatial mechanisms into the explanation of social differentiation, identified cultural transmission within distinct parts of cities that affected the

Neill and Geraint Ellis The purpose of this chapter is to review the history of strategic spatial policy in post-partition Northern Ireland. The principal focus of the chapter falls on developments since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, especially in relation to the vision of regional planning as a whole and physical image enhancement of the ‘post-conflict’ city of Belfast in particular.

The Love Medicine tetralogy and Tales of Burning Love
David Stirrup

This chapter discusses the unity and spatial relations found in the Love Medicine tetralogy and the Tales of Burning Love, identifying the metaphors used in the novels and explaining how the specific post-contact condition of Native – especially mixed blood – life in the United States is addressed. It also examines the deconstructive work of Erdrich's texts during the early stages of Love Medicine; Leslie Silko's review of Erdrich's prose style; the imagery of culture, syncretism and Catholicism in the novels; the fluidity of Erdrich's prose; and the fundamental themes of her early work.

Settler emigration, the voyage out, and shipboard literary production

shaped by the spatial, temporal, and material limitations of the voyage. As they move across the globe, they disseminate not only news of what happens on a particular voyage, but also the cultural form of the periodical. 6 As Jude Piesse has argued, land-based periodicals in this period are marked by a mobile subjectivity: they circulate widely throughout the British Empire, and within a settler colonial context they ‘not only reflected mobility, but were actively involved in producing it’. 7 Shipboard periodicals might be said to go one step further: not only do

the first industrial region 7 spatial integration and the urban sy stem Spatial integration and the urban system Manchester, like an industrious spider, is placed in the centre of the web . . . An order sent from Liverpool in the morning is discussed by the merchants in the Manchester exchange at noon, and in the evening is distributed among the manufacturers in the environs.1 As Lepetit argues, it was the inter-relations between towns that made a loose framework of centres into a functioning urban system.2 Much the same was true of the wider economy: growth

agency of white women without simultaneously erasing the agency of colonised peoples’ (McEwan, 2000: 176). One has to ask oneself if it is adequate to simply devote one chapter to indigenous views of spatiality. However, throughout this study I have tried to show that colonisers’ views of space were framed within and in reaction to indigenous notions of space, the relations that the colonisers had with indigenous people and the knowledge that they gained from them. McEwan argues that ‘rather than being that onto which the coloniser projects a previously constituted

Spatial dimensions of ecological governance Do the twain ever meet? ‘Natural’ and ‘man-made’ systems and the problem of scale The nature–society interface: different scales, problems of fit, and nestedness Space is of central concern to rational ecological governance. Environmental problems and resource management issues cross the man-made scales of local, regional or national governments. The question thus becomes how ‘to negotiate a better fit’ in responding to very complex ecological challenges

Introduction This chapter focuses on the role of spatial planning in enhancing or eroding quality of life in rural regions and localities. Planning is central to the spatial governance of rural territories in terms of managing spatial change processes, balancing competing and emerging demands for rural space, and guiding the use of land as a
