In his influential book, The Production of Space (1991) Henri Lefebvre sets out his oft-cited ‘conceptual triad’ of space: spatial practice (the spheres of) ‘production and reproduction . . . and the particular locations and spatial sets characteristic of each social formation’; representations of space, including ‘conceptualised space, the space of scientists, planners, urbanists, . . .’ and representational spaces, ‘space as directly lived through its associated images and symbols . . . the space of inhabitants . . users . . a few writers who . . do no more than describe’.
Following Lefebvre, it is this lived space that will be explored in this lecture. Drawing on lived experience of three cities, their institutions, subjects and relationships, the lecture will examine how, as scholars, our work (research, writing, teaching) is influenced and moulded, even generated by very specific spaces and relationships.
