New book: Digital Geographies

digital geographies book coverDigital Geographies, edited by James Ash, Rob Kitchin and Agnieszka Leszczynski, has been published by Sage.  The book provides an overview of how digital technologies have become part of everyday life, mediating tasks such as work, travel, consumption, production, and leisure, and are having increasingly profound effects on phenomena that are of immediate concern to geographers. These include: the production of space, spatiality and mobilities; the processes, practices, and forms of mapping; the contours of spatial knowledge and imaginaries; and, the formation and enactment of spatial knowledge politics  Similarly, there are distinct geographies of digital media such as those of the internet, games, and social media that have become indispensable to geographic practice and scholarship across sub-disciplines, regardless of conceptual approach. The book is divided into five sections.
