Mediation and Place: The Sharpening and Weakening of Boundaries

Forskningsoutput: Kapitel i bok/rapport/Conference proceedingKapitel samlingsverk

Abstract

This chapter starts off in communication geography and discuss the dynamic relationship between media and place. The main argument is that processes of mediation are central to the meaning of place although without determination; mediations may both strengthen and weaken boundaries of place. This argument is based on an interdisciplinary double theorization where the concept of place as well as media are elaborated. Hence, place is here understood as composed of social relations and infused with meaning and power, while media are considered broadly, including infrastructures, representations and communication practices.
