"If David Harvey once said that space is too important to be left to 
geographers alone, here we have precisely the confirmation needed."

/Kay Anderson, Professorial Research Fellow at the Institute for Culture 
and Society, Western Sydney University/


"Like Roberts’ recent writing this book pursues ideas through crossing 
land in a flirtive manner; stories, other worldly sightings and 
readings; [the chapter] ‘castaway’ being typically wayward. Unusual and 
in a Sinclairesque manner, he opens up conceptually as he explores often 
unfamiliar territory, appealing to a wide range of disciplines beyond 
humanities with a style that works well."

/David Crouch, Emeritus Professor of Cultural Geography, University of 
Derby/

"/Spatial Anthropology/ expertly defines a new expression of spatial 
humanities and helpfully positions it as a field in-between disciplines. 
Drawing upon insights from anthropology, Roberts’ rejects space as an 
abstract container; rather, it is lived, practiced, and performed. Here, 
space is material and dynamic, replete with meanings and memories that 
shape who we are and how we navigate the world."

/David Bodenhamer, Executive Director of The Polis Center and Professor 
of History, Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis/

/Spatial Anthropology /draws together a number of interrelated strands 
of research focused on landscape, place and cultural memory in the 
north-west of England. At the core of the book lies an engagement with 
the methodological opportunities offered by new interdisciplinary 
frameworks of research and practice that have emerged in the wake of a 
putative ‘spatial turn’ in arts and humanities scholarship in recent 
years. The spatial methods explored in the book represent a 
consolidation of site-specific interventions enacted in landscapes 
located in the north-west and beyond. Utilising digital tools and 
geospatial technologies alongside ethnographic, performative and 
autoethnographic modes of spatio-cultural analysis, spatial anthropology 
is presented as a geographically immersive and critically reflexive set 
of practices designed to explore the embodied and increasingly 
multi-faceted spatialities of place, mobility and memory. From the 
radically placeless environment of a motorway traffic island, to the 
‘affective archipelago’ of former cinema sites, or the ‘songlines’ and 
micro-geographies of musical memory, /Spatial Anthropology /offers a 
rich tapestry of landscapes, practices and spatial stories that speaks 
to both the particularities of place and locality as well as the more 
delocalised topographies of regional, national and global mobility.
