Displacement, Space and Dwelling: Placing Gentrification Debate

Displacement, Space and Dwelling: Placing Gentrification Debate This paper is concerned with the conceptualisations of space which underlie debate of gentrification-related displacement. Using Derrida's concept of the spatial metaphor, the paper illuminates the Cartesian understandings of space that act as architecture for displacement debate. The paper corrects this through arguing that the philosophy of Heidegger and Lefebvre better serves to understand displacement. Emphasising the topology of Heidegger's Dasein and, following Elden, relating this to Lefebvre's understanding of space, the paper ‘constructs’ displacement in a way that avoids the abstraction of displacement-as-out-migration and instead emphasises the lived experience of space. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png "Ethics, Policy & Environment" Taylor & Francis

Abstract

This paper is concerned with the conceptualisations of space which underlie debate of gentrification-related displacement. Using Derrida's concept of the spatial metaphor, the paper illuminates the Cartesian understandings of space that act as architecture for displacement debate. The paper corrects this through arguing that the philosophy of Heidegger and Lefebvre better serves to understand displacement. Emphasising the topology of Heidegger's Dasein and, following Elden, relating this to Lefebvre's understanding of space, the paper ‘constructs’ displacement in a way that avoids the abstraction of displacement-as-out-migration and instead emphasises the lived experience of space.
