Traditionally, TIME has been the conceptual category that was linked to critical social theorising. Marx saw the purchase of the worker's time as the key ingredient in the exploitation of the working class and as the basis for new theories of social change. More recently, mostly through the work and writings of Henri Lefebvre, we have come to understand the crucial role played by Space in the dynamic of social control and hegemony. These 3 PDFs chart the way that Space has historically played a key role in the processes of colonisation and subjugation. They show how DisPLACEment and rePLACEment of meaning were and are used to undermine resistance to colonisation. 

The PDF is in three parts:

Part 2 extends the analysis of colonisation - using the example of Christianity and its imposition upon Celtic culture. This analysis leads into an understanding of the role of Space inj the development of Capitalism

PART 3: MODERN CRITICAL SPACE

Following this, Part 3 discusses the role played by appropriation and commodification in the reproduction of capitalist economies and values - demonstrating, for instance, how the modern concept of Landscape has been socially constructed to depoliticise and mystify the role of space in the process of social control.
