Cultural Geography in Practice


Cultural Geography in Practice by Miles Ogborn

Cultural Geography in Practice provides an innovative and accessible approach to the sources, theories and methods of cultural geography. Written by an international team of prominent cultural geographers, all of whom are experienced researchers, this book is a fully illustrated guide to methodological approaches in cultural geography. In order to demonstrate the practice of cultural geography each chapter combines the following features: A*Practical instruction in using one of the main methods of cultural geography (e.g. interviewing, interpreting texts and visual images, participatory methods) A*An overview of a key area of concern in cultural geography (e.g. the body, national identity, empire, marginality) A*A nuts and bolts description of the actual application of the theories and methods within a piece of research With the addition of boxed definitions of key concepts and descriptions of research projects by students who devised and undertook them, Cultural Geography in Practice is an essential manual of research practice for both undergraduate and graduate geography students.


A book designed to help students find out how it is done, and how they themselves can do it . This book contains an interesting, readable and valuable set of essays. The Times Higher What it promises, and what it delivers, is a useful and accessible guide to practising cultural geography: a guide that is suggestive rather than prescriptive. If you're interested in cultural geography, you should have a copy of this book... ...This is a book to be dipped into as specific research problems arise, and to be used more generally to think about the messiness of the research process.
