Editorial Introduction

Networking Knowledge Special Issue: Mediating Place


This special issue features nine contributions from postgraduate and early career scholars who responded to a call for papers on the theme of Mediating Place for the 2020 MeCCSA PGR conference at the University of Brighton, which sadly had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. I would like to take a moment here to thank and acknowledge the hard work of the authors in writing their articles at a time when we were all struggling with its ongoing impacts. I would also like to thank and acknowledge those that were not able to complete their papers for the multiple reasons that the social and political fallout of the pandemic has caused.

The diversity of ways in which this issue’s theme ‘Mediating Place’ can be considered and applied is reflected in the range of responses and disciplines from which its contributors are working. This is also reflected in the differing styles of their papers and the methods that they have used for their enquiries. What is common to all is that concepts of ‘place’ and ‘space’ have remained rooted in subjective human perception.
