Everyday Life in Asia : Social Perspectives on the Senses, Hardback Book

Everyday Life in Asia : Social Perspectives on the Senses Hardback

Edited by Kelvin E. Y. Low

Description

Everyday Life in Asia offers a range of detailed case studies which present social perspectives on sensory experiences in Asia.

Thematically organized around the notions of the experience of space and place, tradition and the senses, cross-border sensory experiences, and habitus and the senses - its rich empirical content reveals people's commitment to place, and the manner in which its sensory experience provides the key to penetrating the meanings abound in everyday life. Offering the first close analysis of various facets of sensory experience in places that share a geographical location or cultural orientation in Asia, this collection links the conception of place with understandings of 'how the senses work'.

With contributions from an international team of experts, Everyday Life in Asia will be of interest to anthropologists, geographers and sociologists with interests in culture, everyday life, and their relation to the senses of place and space.
