Ryan Enos, “The Space Between Us”
October 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
The Space Between Us brings the connection between geography, psychology, and politics to life. By going into the neighborhoods of real cities, Enos shows how our perceptions of racial, ethnic, and religious groups are intuitively shaped by where these groups live and interact daily. Through the lens of numerous examples across the globe and drawing on a compelling combination of research techniques including field and laboratory experiments, big data analysis, and small-scale interactions, this timely book provides a new understanding of how geography shapes politics and how members of groups think about each other. This rigorous research illuminates the profound effects of social geography on how we relate, think, and politically interact across groups in the fabric of our daily lives.
Sponsored by the Network Science Institute, the NULab, and the American Politics Research Colloquium, Department of Political Science.
