Dialectics of Space and Place across Virtual and Corporeal Topographies crosses over fields of architecture, geography, feminism, philosophy, politics, and the creative and visual arts. Through academic, practice-based and lay perspectives, this volume explores the inter- and multi-disciplinary subjects of space and place in two parts. Part 1 Virtual topographies of Space and Place is concerned with themes related to immaterial places, platial ecologies, gendered spaces, the home, haunted places and meshworks of paths and wayfaring in virtual spaces and places.  Part II Corporeal Topographies of Space and Place explores narratives of real and imagined experiences of places. It looks at places of folklore, spaces in flux, vague spaces, sublime places and spaces of intensity.  It looks at places of power and oppression in black and post-apartheid spaces, places of incarceration, and in spaces of governmentalities and resistance. This volume, underpinned by an array of philosophical positions set forth by Henri Lefebvre, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Michel Foucault, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Gaston Bachelard, Homi K. Bhabha and Walter Benjamin, amongst others, explores and explicates these themes, providing a foundation for new dialogues on the subjects of space and place in support of nuanced and responsive understandings of their contemporary meanings, relevance and applications.
