Doreen Massey, FBA, FRSA is Professor of Geography at the Open University, London. She has long-term research interests in the theorisation of 'space' and 'place' which range through a critique of globalisation, regional uneven development, the reconceptualisation of place and from the philosophical and largely conceptual through to the directly political. She co-founded and now co-edits Soundings: a journal of politics and culture and has made a significant contribution to The Shape of the World and Understanding Cities, two courses currently run in the Geography department of the Open University. Her forthcoming book is called For Space and will be published by Sage Publications in February.
