Summary

Taking a multidisciplinary approach, this volume examines the relationship between space and the production of local popular culture in contemporary China. The international team of contributors examine the inter-relationship between the cultural imaginary of a given place and China’s continuing drive towards urbanization. This has led to the development of new spaces and places, and new forms of spatial practices that destabilise old concepts of the ‘local’ and ‘locality’.

Delivering ethnographic observations and theoretical speculations, this text furthers our understanding of the link between spatial thinking and the production of consumer culture in China.
