Sample text

There is no doubt that the advance of ‘mass media’ and global economic competition has undermined the processes through which a strong and immediate sense of local identification is adopted by individuals, but it would be a very sweeping generalisation that denied the continuing desire for such a local identity (for example, in local history groups, amongst fans of football clubs or amongst various different kinds of craft group and other hobbyists. The new sociological writing on ‘reflexive modernization’ (notably Tony Giddens in his commentary on Hägerstrand’s geography of everyday work and leisure time) (Giddens 1984) emphasises the importance of what is seen as a routinised set of practices, as a solid basis from which actors proceed to engage in reflexivity and innovation in their lives.

Lash and Urry 1994:212) A considerable amount of research was undertaken in Britain during the 1980s on the essentially uneven fate and experience of different localities with respect to ‘de-industrialisation’ and the shift to ‘postFordist arrangements of production’. It is probably fair to say that the logic of enquiry in these studies, deriving from a realist political economy tradition, rather than from the perspective of a cultural sociology of place, has not so far generated an account of this unevenness in terms of what we are calling a ‘local structure of feeling’.
