Abstract

While many of the articles in this collection document the construction of master narratives, they also document resistance to dominant discourses. The articles in this volume clearly show how places are interpreted and reinterpreted fluidly in ways that link not only to people's pasts but to their present and their future. Importantly, all the accounts of contested geographies here hold implications for the future. They envision change on both individual and societal levels for the ways things are done and how those processes are understood. The articles examine aspects of traditional culture as expressions of contestation and sometimes negotiation and in so doing, they offer hopeful glimpses of fairer ways of organising our lives and our world.
