Recent work in several fields of psychology has advanced understanding of how humans imaginatively construct, simulate and (pre-)feel the future. These advances have not yet been substantively engaged in social and cultural geography. In this paper, we identify, review and begin to draw together scholarship in human geography and several subfields...
Chapter
In parts of Asia, citizens are increasingly involved in shaping their neighbourhoods and cities, representing a significant departure from earlier state-led or market-driven urban development. These emerging civic urbanisms are a result of an evolving relationship between the state and civil society. The contributions in this volume provide critica...
Chapter
Today, cities depend on global food systems that prioritize urban needs over that of other regions. These food systems are part of a model of urbanism that works towards increasing disconnection in the food ecosystem – ecologically and sociopolitically. By discussing our varied experiences with a community food initiative in Singapore, Foodscape Co...
Article

Resilient food infrastructures responsive to instability and change often form at the urban edge of food systems. As such, they could take heed of knowledge practices that occur at the urban edge. This paper conceptualizes learning as a co-productive activity that can be scaffolded by space, and examines how it applies to the re-imagination of food...
Article

Food waste is a global societal meta-challenge requiring a sustainability transition involving everyone, including publics. However, to date, much transitions research has been silent on the role of public participation and overly narrow in its geographical reach. In response, this paper examines whether the ecologies of participation (EOP) approac...

Article
Full-text available
Across urbanising Asia, edible commons surprise, contradict or challenge social norms of being in public. Their presence provokes new adjudications of approaching, governing and managing shared and living property, prompting thought on how public and private realms of life may converge into informal modes of co-governance for green place-making and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Background. Although family caregivers of patients with cancer face high levels of psychological distress, there is no literature on the efficacy of psychological support group interventions for caregivers in Singapore. This study aimed to establish the efficacy of an intervention developed from brief integrative psychological therapy (BIPT) at the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The search for a collective identity has long been associated with societal pressures that thwart the development of an integrated and continuous self (Johnston, Laraña, & Gusfield, 1994). Together with greater social and geographical mobility, postmodernism’s manifesto of plurality, diversity and relativity has reduced both our desire for complete...

Environing Infrastructure aims to set out a conceptual path linking empirical studies of infrastructure with research into socio-environmental phenomena and discourse. In order to do so, we take the vantage point of contemporary Chinese global infrastructure to introduce novel ways of understanding planetary environmental narratives, transnational political-economic systems and centre-periphery relations, revealing a wider picture that supersedes individual construction projects and particular nation-states. https://www.environing.asia/
