DIFFUSION eBooks: Species of Spaces

Proboscis is pleased to announce that four new DIFFUSION eBooks will be published on Thursday 30th June, and launched at the Social Tapestries Public Forum on Friday 1st July.

The eBooks have been commissioned for the third series of Species of Spaces, inspired by and in homage to George Perec's eponymous book. The series contemplates how we occupy space in the contemporary world of the twenty-first century the virtual and physical, emotional and social what Perec called the "infra-ordinary". Species of Spaces questions the trajectory of contemporary urban existence, intervening in current debates on how the virtual and the physical relate to each other, and how technological advances affect cultural and social structures.

The four eBooks are:

Stirring Still: The City Soul and its Metaspaces by Raoul Bunschoten
On Spatial Perception by Nina Czegledy
Separate Spaces: Some Cognitive Dimensions of Movement by Scott deLahunta
Labours of Location: Acting in the Pervasive Media Space by Minna Tarkka

The eBooks will be available to download here as A4 and US Letter PDFs from Friday 1st July.
