Public Space and the Ideology of Place in American Culture by Miles Orvell download in iPad, ePub, pdf
Edited by Miles Orvell and Jeffrey L. These eighteen essays, including several case studies, offer convincing evidence of a spatial turn in American studies. And often its use has been contested.
They argue for a re-visioning of American culture as a history of place-making and the instantiation of meaning in structures, boundaries, and spatial configurations. Creating, defining, and redefining urban space continually inspires questions about the relationship between place and person. Each author uses different cases to probe, untangle, and decode the creation of public space, both in the physical sense and as a constructed meaning. There is one notable exception.
