Interlude I: Geographies of change Transformation and transition are fundamentally spatial processes. Change un- folds and is rooted in places, connects close and distant sites, shifts horizontal and vertical relations, and involves the negotiation of territories and boundaries. A number of recent contributions explore the spatialities of transition and transfor- mation (Bouzarovski and Haarstad, 2018; Chatterton, 2016; Chatterton and Pick- erill, 2010; Coenen et al., 2012; Hansen and Coenen, 2015; Longhurst, 2015; Raven et al., 2012; A. Smith et al., 2010

Concluding thoughts on making transformative geographies What is politically possible is at odds with what is physically possible, so in a sense, it is the servomechanism-agents of Kapi- tal, not their opponents, who ‘demand the impossible’ now. Their fantasy of a sustain- able Kapitalism carrying on, forever, with- out burning the planet, is perfectly delirial. Fisher, 2018, p. 433f. Activists, scholars, entrepreneurs, and politicians around the world increasingly take note of the ills of current modes of social organizations and the possibilities of a different

Cultural Geographies Space is to place as eternity is to time. JOSEPH JOUBERT THE WORLD ACCORDING TO GEOGRAPHERS The relationship between people and their (created) surrounding(s) is looked at closely in geography and, more precisely, human geography which aims “to explain the spatial patterns and processes that enable and constrain the structures and actions of everyday life.” (Dear and Flusty 2002: 2) Human geography is one of the two great strands of geography, the other being physical geography, which includes for example geomorphology or

Chapter 7: From transformative geographies to a degrowth transition While there is no general formula, there are nonetheless some guidelines we can formulate from our analysis for forming collective actors to effectively erode capi- talism. Wright, 2019, p. 142 So far, part II has laid a conceptual foundation for transformative geographies. Starting with the reimagination of togetherness, chapter 5 has continued by grounding transformation materially in the bodies, artefacts, and things of everyday practice. Subsequently, chapter 6 has proposed an understanding

Chapter 20: Transformative geographies and socio-spatial strategies The strategic power of the multitude is the only guarantee. Hardt and Negri, 2017, p. 280. Transformations are profoundly spatial processes. The argument of this book, ac- cordingly, develops around the close imbrication of space, politics, and transfor- mation. It advances the notion ‘transformative geographies’ to describe the spatial struggles and negotiations over just and sustainable forms of (more-than-) human co-exis- tence materializing in antagonistic, divergent, adjusting, and

Chapter 6: Scale and power in transformative geographies Rather than thinking of the emphases on domination or on constitution as belong- ing to two incompatible ways of thinking about power, we might be better served to view them as two emphases combined in different ways by different traditions of thought. Barnett, 2017, p. 26 Practice theory resonates with community economy scholarship in several ways. Both practice theory and community economy thinking “abandon the ontological privileging of systemic or structural determination” (Gibson-Graham, 2008, p. 623

Gendered Geographies of Power Ein Modell zur Analyse von Bildungsmigration und Geschlecht am Beispiel von Malaysia und Singapur Viola Thimm In Asien leben circa die Hälfte der Weltbevölkerung und fast zwei Drit- tel der weltweiten Arbeitskräfte.1 Die besondere Geschwindigkeit und das besondere Ausmaß an ökonomischen, politischen, sozialen und demo- grafischen Veränderungen in Asien führen seit den 1960er-Jahren zu Arbeitsmigrationen, und zwar sowohl innerhalb einzelner als auch zwi- schen verschiedenen Staaten. Dabei bildete sich in den letzten Jahrzehn- ten

Geographies of the Mediterranean Plural Subjects in the Diaspora Giulia de Spuches The Mediterranean: Overlapping Territories, Intertwined Histories In the heartlands of the Mediterranean, the locution ›sailing the seas‹ (even in the sixteenth century) actually means ›to follow the coastline‹. Man – as everyone knows – leads his life and builds his institutions on the mainland, but one consid- ers the movement of his own existence in terms of (reckless) navigation. It is no coincidence that in the De Rerum Natura Blumenberg resorts to explaining how the wreck is
