Description :
E. Casey provides a compelling means of interrogating affective dimensions, distinguishing thick and 'thin places in everyday life. Casey's work restores the affective fecundity of place, even if it fails to provide a clear sense of how thick places might be identified. The paper takes up this challenge in an attempt to clarify the role of affect and practice in the production of place. It is then turning to an ethnographic account of young people, place, and urban life in Vancouver. The study explores the ways young people negotiate and transform place and the impact these practices have on the characteristic orientations of self and belonging.
