thesis
posted on 1995-01-01, 00:00 authored by Malissa Pearl. Helms
The ethnographies of two festive public events are used to analyse some aspects of community and place in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia. Place entails layers of physical and imaginal geographies and involves local and extra-local factors. Discourses about place among those who lived in Darwin are interwoven with discourses about community. A framework of border spaces and intersections are used to look at tensions and accommodations in presenting sometimes conflicting versions/visions of Darwin.
