In the past fifteen years, Henri Lefebvre’s reputation has catapulted into the stratosphere, and he is now considered an equal to some of the greats of European social theory (Bourdieu, Deleuze, Harvey). In particular, his work has revitalized urban studies, geography and planning via concepts like; the social production of space, the right to the city, everyday life, and global urbanization. Lefebvre’s massive body of work has generated two main schools of thought: one that is political economic, and another that is more culturally oriented and poststructuralist in tone. Space, Difference, and Everyday Life merges these two schools of thought into a unified Lefebvrian approach to contemporary urban issues and the nature of our spatialized social structures.

As with so many facets of contemporary western life, architecture and space are often experienced and understood as a commodity or product. The premise of this book is to offer alternatives to the practices and values of such westernised space and Architecture (with a capital A), by exploring the participatory and grass-roots practices used in alternative development models in the Global South. This process re-contextualises the spaces, values, and relationships produced by such alternative methods of development and social agency. It asks whether such spatial practices provide concrete realisations of some key concepts of Western spatial theory, questioning whether we might challenge the space and architectures of capitalist development by learning from the places and practices of others. Exploring these themes offers a critical examination of alternative development practices methods in the Global South, re-contextualising them as architectural engagements with socio-political space. The comparison of such interdisciplinary contexts and discourses reveals the political, social, and economic resonances inherent between these previously unconnected spatial protagonists. The interdependence of spatial issues of choice, value, and identity are revealed through a comparative study of the discourses of Henri Lefebvre, John Turner, Doreen Massey, and Nabeel Hamdi. These key protagonists offer a critical framework of discourses from which further connections to socio-spatial discourses and concepts are made, including post-marxist theory, orientalism, post-structural pluralism, development anthropology, post-colonial theory, hybridity, difference and subalterneity. By looking to the spaces and practices of alternative development in the Global South this book offers a critical reflection upon the working practices of Westernised architecture and other spatial and political practices. In exploring the methodologies, implications and values of such participatory development practices this book ultimately seeks to articulate the positive potential and political of learning from the difference, multiplicity, and otherness of development practice in order to re-imagine architecture and space. .

Die Theorie der Produktion des Raumes von Henri Lefebvre hat in den letzten Jahren in den Sozialwissenschaften einen herausragenden Stellenwert gewonnen. Ihre Bedeutung liegt insbesondere darin, dass sie die Kategorien der aStadto und des aRaumeso in eine uebergreifende raum-zeitliche Theorie gesellschaftlicher Praxis integriert. Die bisherige Rezeption dieser Theorie blieb jedoch fragmentarisch und inkonsistent, und sie hat die zentralen erkenntnistheoretischen Pramissen Lefebvres nicht beruecksichtigt. Zum ersten Mal wird hier eine systematische wissenschaftstheoretische Rekonstruktion dieser Theorie in ihrem zeitgeschichtlichen und epistemologischen Kontext prasentiert. Im Sinne einer kritischen Aneignung und Weiterentwicklung dieser Theorie entwirft das Buch die Grundlinien eines allgemeinen analytischen Rahmens zur Interpretation raum-zeitlicher Phanomene und Prozesse. .

Critical studies and analyses of space are becoming increasingly common in scholarship, although it is not always clear how such studies proceed, what theoretical works inform them, or what are their potential benefits for biblical studies. This volume helps address those questions, by including the work of biblical scholars working in a range of historical periods and locations, from Deuteronomy's idealized spaces to the Qumran community on the shores of the Dead Sea. Each of the scholars in this volume is actively involved in the critical study of space, having presented work on this topic in regional, national, or international meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature. The essays included in this volume combine theoretical and interpretive concerns in the analysis of texts from the Hebrew Bible and the Dead Sea Scrolls. Scholars in Biblical Studies, Archaeology, Religious Studies, and Anthropology will find this to be a valuable resource for gaining new understandings of the critical study of space in antiquity.

Das unumstrittene Grundlagenwerk für die moderne Stadt - Henri Lefebvres Recht auf Stadt endlich in deutscher Übersetzung Allerorten wird in den letzten Jahren ein »Recht auf Stadt« eingefordert - von sozialen Protestbewegungen gegen Gentrifizierung weltweit. NGOs und UN-Organisationen postulieren es gleichermaßen. Kritische Stadtforscher wie David Harvey, Peter Marcuse oder Niels Boeing beziehen sich in ihrer radikalen Gesellschaftskritik auf Henri Lefebvre, der das Konzept 1968 entworfen hat - in einer Schrift, die hier nun zum ersten Mal in deutscher Übersetzung vorliegt. »Recht auf Stadt« ist mehr als die individuelle Freiheit, auf städtische Ressourcen zugreifen zu können. Es ist das Recht auf ein erneuertes urbanes Leben. Angesichts der sozialen Probleme in den desolaten Hochhaus-Vorstädten und anderer Folgen des rasanten Städtewachstums nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg stellte Lefebvre schon in den sechziger Jahren fest, dass der Urbanisierungsprozess einhergeht mit einem Verlust der Stadt als Ort der kreativen Schöpfung, zugunsten einer bloßen industriellen Verwertungslogik. Er postuliert aber keine Abkehr von der Stadt - etwa in die zeitgleich entstehenden amerikanischen Mittelklasse-Vororte -, sondern macht in der Stadt ein enormes Potenzial aus, das zu einer emanzipierten urbanen Gesellschaft führen kann. Das Recht auf Stadt ist ein gesamtgesellschaftliches Anrecht auf Begegnung, Teilhabe, Austausch, das große Fest und einen kollektiv gestalteten und genutzten städtischen Raum. Zum selben Thema sind erschienen: Niels Boeing VON WEGEN. Überlegungen zur freien Stadt der Zukunft Christoph Twickel GENTRIFIDINGSBUMS oder EINE STADT FÜR ALLE
