: Despite calls for greater social work attention to the centrality of place in human life, the profession has yet to hone frameworks that fully capture the role of place in individual-collective identity and well-being. To move this agenda forward, this article draws on data from a series of focus groups to explore the placed experiences of women in Palestine. Analytically, it is informed by critical place inquiry, which emphasises the deeply interactional relationships between people and place...

ABSTRACTSocial work’s traditional emphasis on the individual in the context of social environments has resulted in a neglect of the person in the context of physical environments. This conceptual article addresses this oversight by presenting three subconcepts of place—place attachment, place identity, and territoriality—and draws on research examples with marginalized populations to illustrate the possibilities for understanding and integrating these concepts into social work. We ultimately arg...

Abstract Even in a digitally advanced society, much of our daily lives is based in place, but information behavior research has largely ignored place as theoretically relevant to information behavior. This study explores the implications of a place-based approach to studying information practices, and examines factors that influence information seeking and sharing in place-based communities among parents of individuals with disabilities. Based on qualitative data gathered from 35 parents of indi...

Limited attention has been given to the concept of place in social work research and practice. This paper draws on the national evaluation of social work practices (SWPs) in England undertaken between 2009 and 2012. SWPs were pilot organisations providing independent social work services for children in out-of-home care in five sites. One factor distinguishing some of these pilots was their attention to place. The evaluation employed a mixed methods approach and we use data from interviews with ...

This paper summarises approaches to space in social work literature so far and shows that, while such work has developed important insights, it has not generally engaged with conceptualisations of space that have been developed in social and cultural geography. The paper introduces Henri Lefebvre's concept of a spatial dialectics, which has been highly influential in geography and which, the paper argues, enables a critical consideration of the ways that space is produced or constructed in socia...

The time to recalibrate the imbalance between micro and macro social work is now. There is an important initiative in progress, as we will show, to infuse the foundational macro component of our profession into the classroom and field to achieve a more equal footing with its clinical counterpart. This effort reflects and reinforces the understanding that social problems require complex and sustained intervention at all levels of social work practice. It has gained momentum since President Obama’...

This article argues that a hybrid role for urban planners has emerged within the largely neoliberalised spaces of contemporary Australian governance. This role is one that transcends previously rigid or clearly defined sectoral positions to blend public, private and community responsibilities in novel and complex ways. The first section of the article briefly sketches the historical shifts that have led to this hitherto unseen hybrid role. The second section explores the notion of hybridity as a...

This essay argues for a paradigm shift in what counts as learning and literacy education for youth. Two related constructs are emphasized: collective Third Space and sociocritical literacy. The construct of a collective Third Space builds on an existing body of research and can be viewed as a particular kind of zone of proximal development. The perspective taken here challenges some current definitions of the zone of proximal development. A sociocritical literacy historicizes everyday and instit...

One of the continuing theoretical debates in community studies is about the definition of community, especially whether the concept of community includes groups of people who share common interests and interaction but who do not share common geographical locality. Starting with the classic dichotomy of Gemeinschaft and Gesellschaft, many scholars have described a weakening of traditional ties among community members due to urbanization and industrialization. Today, it is useful to define communi...
