Sammanfattning (abstract):
People’s different relations towards their environment are always the result of how they perceive it and how different spatialities are ascribed symbolic meaning. Given that conceptualizations, frameworks and perceptions always guide our thoughts, judgments and actions (cf. Latour, Law, Urry, Dennett, Foucault), the particular ways in which we relate to certain concepts – and especially concepts chosen to act as inspirational guiding forces for policy development – become expressly relevant if our aim is to achieve more sustainable planning and management. At the same time, seeing policy formulation as a complex actor-network that heterogeneously combines different interests into a unified framework tacitly paves the way for a series of conceptual and practical problems for areas outside of what is considered “the norm”. There, put simply, achieving even the simplest of goals might prove problematic due to lingering preconceived visions of how issues associated with certain spatialities ought to be handled. In this presentation, we explore one such intricate interrelation by revisiting the culturally perpetuated urban-rural dichotomy as a conceptual canvas and – using examples from Poland – juxtaposing it with a type of environment victimized by its imperviousness to urban-rural ideations.
