Toward a Global Politics of Appalachia
Smith, a sociologist, contends that the politicization of “place” deserves serious attention, and she contests the common view, especially on the Left, that local, place-based politics is inadequate, futile, and reactionary for confronting globalization. Highlighting exemplary grassroots strategies in Appalachia that she describes as “making space,” “crossing space,” and “transgressing space,” she points toward potentially effective forms of locally based global politics of place that challenge the neoliberal privatization of common places and resources described, in her words, as analogous to prison “lockdowns.”
