2017 Roundtable: Space, place, and politics

Date: Thursday Jun 01 1:30 pm to 3:00 pm
Location: VIC 305

There is an enduring tension in the social sciences studies between approaches that focus on spatial context as constitutive of action and those that focus on individual characteristics and psychology. This roundtable brings together political scientists and sociologists to discuss whether, and how, spatial contexts and relations matter. They will discuss various approaches to studying the spatiality of social and political behaviour and the potential and limits of contextual analysis. This session is hosted by the Canadian Political Science Association.
