Cohabiting and Confronting Interstitial Spaces and Landscapes

*Session organizers: Ashraful Alam & Donna Houston (Dept. of Geography &
Planning, Macquarie University, Australia)*

*Session Theme: Urban Geography*

Interstitial spaces are defined as spaces that are not deliberately planned
but generated as the by-product of conscious human design. The term is used
in a wide range of disciplines including architecture, planning, and urban
and cultural geography. David Harvey and Doreen Massey use ‘interstitial’
to define the dynamic condition of unfolding creative resistance (and
recalcitrance) to the dominant material logics of space, power and capital.
Matthew Gandy uses 'interstitial' and 'unintentional' to highlight
spontaneous 'unguarded spaces' where 'both ecological and socio-cultural
diversity can flourish.' Similarly, Emma Power uses the term 'liminal' to
emphasise the surprising and unintended encounters in the 'more-than-human'
home. This session is open to scholars working with/or in interstitial,
unintended and liminal spaces (or landscapes) and scholars currently
exploring the potential of thinking with interstitial spaces as an emergent
form of more-than-human co-becoming.
