Institutions and Well-Being: Heritage, Space & Bodies

March 28, 2018
Location: 
Sweden
Subject Fields: 
Cultural History / Studies, Urban History / Studies, Geography, Psychology, Social Sciences

We invite contributions for a collection of articles exploring the intersections of heritage, space and well-being. The planned volume seeks to investigate how traces of history impact on space and the ways in which the ensuing interrelations facilitate or curtail well-being. Thus, for instance, ‘traces’ of history affect the extent to which different (ethic, gendered, classed, etc.) bodies can extend into space (Ahmed 2006), and this has significant influence on their well-being.
