Going in, going out, going home and away:  On transgression as spatial practice

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportKonferenceabstrakt i proceedingsForskning


The paper discusses the ways in which meaning is attached to movement, place and the transgression of boundaries. I argue that rather than understanding movement, place and the transgression of boundaries as empirical phenomena, we should focus on how certain activities are given the status of ‘movement'; how they are given meaning and importance, by whom and with which consequences. How are the places or positions, between which movements take place, singled out as such - as something which one can move between, out of or into? How are distinctions between inside and outside designated - the distinctions which are prerequisites for moving ‘forward', ‘out' or ‘back' etc.? Considering such questions, I attempt at developing an ‘analytics of movement', which consider places and movements between places as discursively constructed phenomena, rather than simple empirical facts.
