Books By Author Kim Dovey
Becoming Places, Paperback (July 2009)
Deals with the practices and politics of place and identity formation - the slippery ways in which who we are becomes wrapped up with where we are. Drawing on the social theories of Deleuze and Bourdieu, this book analyzes the sense of place as socio-spatial assemblage and as embodied habitus, through a broad range of case studies.
Framing Places, Paperback (August 2007)
Presents an account of the nexus between place and power, investigating how the built forms of architecture and urban design act as mediators of social practices of power. Explored through a range of theories and case studies, this volume shows how lives are 'framed' within the clusters of rooms, buildings, streets and cities.
