Ecologies of Affect offers a synthetic introduction to the felt dynamics of cities and the character of places. The contributors capture the significance of affects including desire, nostalgia, memory, and hope in forming the identity and tone of places. The critical intervention this collection of essays makes is an active, consistent engagement with the virtualities that produce and refract our idealized attachments to place. Contributors show how place images, and attempts to build communities, are, rather than abstractions, fundamentally tied to and revolve around such intangibles. We understand nostalgia, desire, and hope as virtual; that is, even though they are not material, they are nevertheless real and must be accounted for. In this book, the authors take up affect, emotion, and emplacement and consider them in relation to one another and how they work to produce and are produced by certain temporal and spatial dimensions.
The aim of the book is to inspire readers to consider space and place beyond their material properties and attend to the imaginary places and ideals that underpin and produce material places and social spaces. This collection will be useful to practitioners and students seeking to understand the power of affect and the importance of virtualities within contemporary societies, where intangible goods have taken on an increasing value.
The aim of this book is to inspire readers to consider space and place beyond their material properties and attend to the imaginary places, ideals, and real but intangible objects that underpin and produce material places and social spaces. It is in this sense that we are speaking of ecologies. Thus, we approach relations rather than static things or determining structures. While there may be things for the purposes of certain analyses that are addressed as structures and as environments, they are also often treated as limited, autonomous systems. Ecologies sum up the multiple ways of affecting and being affected, of multi-causal processes and contingent outcomes. But they are also nontotal and open systems, criss-crossed by flows. Material and virtual geographies are teased out in this collection of rich ethnographic, phenomenological, and critical analyses that explore the multiple, complicated, and overlapping affective placing of nostalgia, desire, and hope.
