In: Space, Land, Territory, and the Study of the Bible
In this brief volume, written for professional biblical scholars and graduate students being trained in Bible, Stephen C. Russell introduces the reader to the interdisciplinary study of space and its related concepts, including land, territory, border, frontier, nature, scale, spatial flows, and rhythm. He offers a synopsis of eight approaches to the study of space that have been influential in the humanities and social sciences in recent decades—sacred, legal, political, economic, ecological, visual, social, and urban approaches. He pays special attention to Henri Lefebvre’s treatment of social space as a social product. The volume also briefly notes some of the work being done by biblical scholars in conversation with spatial studies.
