The Geographies and Politics of Fear
Shirlow, Peter; Pain, Rachel
Fear is an instrument that is used both to control and manipulate various forms of social and political engagement. The term itself is ever-present in the representation of power and the reproduction of marginalisation and exclusion.


Exploring Landscapes of Fear: Marginality, spectacle and surveillance
Gold, John R; Revill, George

Fear and Loathing at the Multiplex: everyday anxiety in the post-industrial city
Hubbard, Phil

Ethno-sectarianism and the reproduction of fear in Belfast
Shirlow, Peter
Place and the control and administration of violence has and remains a feature of living within Belfast.

Fleeing from fear: The changing role of refuges in meeting the needs of women leaving violent partners
Warrington, Molly
Domestic violence is pervasive within the uk context. Media and other interpreters have downplayed the fact that the most likely perpe­trator of violence are men who women know. In unravelling the realities of violence this paper looks at how the professionalisation of some refuges, for women, has produced negative impacts and implications.


Youth, age and the representation of fear
Pain, Rachel
This paper works against the representation of the young as merely perpetrators of violence and in so doing exposes the reality that many young people, who are at risk, are a common feature of harassment and fear. This paper draws upon the geography of risk for young people and examines the duality and distinctions between feared and fearing.
