time-geography

time-geography

an approach within GEOGRAPHY which focuses on the way in which social events are structured, ‘through time and across geographical space’ (Hepple, 1985). Pioneered by geographers such as Hagerstrand (1975), the general ideas involved in this approach have been recently introduced into sociological thinking by GIDDENS (see also TIME-SPACE DISTANCIATION).
