Example text

In his discussion of competing notions of public space and how they clashed in Berkeley, Mitchell distinguishes public space from public sphere (Habermas) by materiality; that is, public sphere is an abstract realm, but public space is material (116–17). Mitchell, in fact, insists on materiality as a necessary element to public space, largely rejecting the promise of electronic environments to accomplish similar ends of social change. Without political activity and the representation of oppositional movements in a material location, according to Mitchell, then it’s not public space.

The city, therefore, offers at least two ideologies or dominant sets of images and metaphors: (1) city as an embodiment of postmodernism; (2) city as a reflection of democratic ideals. The material conditions of the city are more “in your face” than those of the frontier, which assumes a blank plain; the politics of space, therefore, seem more obvious in the city or less difficult to identify. Still, notions of the city differ ideologically, and too many views of the city glamorize its appeal. Contemporary geographers often turn to the city to illustrate their claims about postmodernism.

Declarations of love and assassinations of character, written and sent on e-mail to one person or erroneously to hundreds, have been forwarded and reproduced far beyond the “intended audience,” causing people to lose their jobs or at least lose face. New York Times writer John Schwartz quotes Sherry Turkle of MIT, professor of the sociology of science, as saying that even people who should know better are “lulled” into thinking that e-mail is private. Her 20 BETWEEN METAPHOR AND MATERIALITY theory is that “many Americans equate e-mail with paper mail, which enjoys strong legal, and social, protections against snooping,” and thus they tend to confuse the two different forms of communication.
