Example text

Sense of place The river becomes, because of its centrality to existence, a ‘central point of reference in identity formation and everyday discursive practices’ (Oslender 2004: 970). The river is more than a physical presence and a source of livelihood; because of these facts it also becomes bestowed with symbolic meaning, emotional significance, and political power. The river is more than just a river. Source: information extracted from Oslender 2004 The value – and the need – of paying attention to these classes of people, types of actions and categories of events is that they constitute or make up daily life.

What applies to people displaced from place like Lam Kwong and urban migrants in Bangladesh, is also relevant for those who remain spatially embedded. In setting out his discussion of social movements among Colombia’s Pacific coast black communities, Oslender (2004) says: ‘we must know the place where a particular movement emerges, where the people who form that movement live, and what it means to them living in this place’ (Oslender 2004: 958, emphasis in original). For Oslender (2004) there is political significance and explanatory power in place.

Core and periphery are also used in terms of the loci of academic and political power. Developed/ less developed These terms refer to the level of economic development of countries and to the rich/poor world binary. They highlight continuing global inequalities but categorise countries as either ‘developed’ or ‘less developed’ when these two categories are internally highly differentiated. They also gloss over the degree of mobility at the margins where some fast-growing economies have made the transition from de facto less developed countries to developed countries, sometimes in less than a generation.
