Alcohol Related Violence and Disorder: New Critical Perspectives (Seminars, Environment) Event as iCalendar
31 July 2014, 3pmSchool of Environment Research Seminar with Dr. Mark Jayne, School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester, United Kingdom. This paper presents new critical perspectives into alcohol-related violence and disorder. In doing so, we advance writing by geographers challenging ontological and epistemological orthodoxies which dominates 'alcohol studies'. By engaging with work focused on playful or ludic urbanism, and literature considering emotions, embodiment and affect, we address an impasse between medical and social sciences approaches in order to better understand and tackle alcohol-related violence and disorder. The paper concludes with theoretical and policy relevant insights.
