imperialism.18 This can be further fed by
developments in materialist culturalstudies and cultural geography
which take ‘the every day life of modernity’ as their focus, and include the
work of Michel de Certeau, David Harvey, Henri Lefebvre, and Edward
Soja. By looking in more detail at the ways this text engages issues of reification, bureaucracy and corporatism, we can better situate the metropole

Yet do we have the right to display them? Alberti et al . ( 2009 : 140) cite the Vermillion Accord (Clause 2), which states that the wishes of the dead (ancient or modern) should be respected where they can be ‘known or reasonably inferred’ – unfortunately the pressures of the contemporary planning and extraction industries often tear the dead out of the place they probably intended to lie in for perpetuity.

Mimicry is a strategy conceptualised by postcolonial, feminist and
culturalstudies as a means of interrogating the alterability of power

which ‘lies less in its conflict of codes, . . . than its excess and exaggeration’, and reveals its capacity to

and ethnic absolutes: in Avtar Brah’s words, diaspora ‘takes account of a
homing desire, as distinct from a desire for a “homeland”’.8 As Paul Gilroy
inﬂuentially argues in The Black Atlantic, cunningly shifting postcolonial and

sciences, from which the distinction between space and place described
here has been drawn, has flourished in recent decades. Some of the
major theorists and critics contributing to how we understand space
and place include Henri Lefebvre, Michel de Certeau, Judith Butler,
Gilles Deleuze, Michel Foucault, and others. For a general introduction, see Phil Hubbard and Rob Kitchin, eds, Key thinkers on space and
