Landscapes of Hate

Providing a much-needed perspective on exclusion and discrimination, this book offers a distinct spatial approach to the topic of hate studies.

Of interest to academics and students of human geography, criminology, sociology and beyond, the book highlights enduring, diverse and uneven experiences of hate in contemporary society. The collection explores the intersecting experiences of those targeted on the basis of assumed and historically marginalized identities. It illustrates the role of specific spaces and places in shaping hate, why space matters for how hate is encountered and the importance of space in challenging cultures of hate. This analysis of who is able to use or abuse space offers a novel insight into discourses of hate and lived experiences of victimization.

“This state-of-the-art collection reveals the way that hate circulates in our society, sometimes erupting in violent words and acts that damage the most vulnerable. Showing that geographical perspectives can provide the basis for challenging hate, this is a timely and ultimately hopeful book.” Phil Hubbard, King’s College London

“Rich in insight, originality and interdisciplinary relevance, this collection urges us to engage with the wider landscapes within which hate incidents are experienced and normalized. Essential reading in these extraordinary times.” Neil Chakraborti, University of Leicester
