Knowledge and institutions
MetadataShow full item record
The relationship between geography and the creation, use, and reproduction of knowledge has been at the core of this book series. The previous twelve volumes have focused, among other topics, on the role that creativity (Meusburger, Funke, & Wunder, 2009), science and universities (Meusburger, Livingston, & Jöns, 2010), power (Meusburger, Gregory, & Suarsana, 2015), culture and action (Meusburger, Werlen, & Suarsana, 2017), and networks (Glückler, Lazega, & Hammer, 2017) have in cultivating an understanding of how the social process of knowing unfolds in space. They all draw attention to ways in which this process is situated in places and how learning connects people across places. Centering on institutions, volume 13 presents yet another perspective on the spatiality of human knowledge. Across the social sciences scholars have been attributing to institutions a major part in social, political, cultural, an d economic development. Although there is agreement on the importance of institutions, there are several understandings of what institutions are and how they influence social life. The purpose of this volume is to examine a rather neglected and only recently acknowledged dimension in institutional theory: the spatiality of institutions, the spatiotemporal dynamics of institutional change, and the role of institutions in the creation and reproduction of knowledge and related social outcomes in bounded territories.
