Meeting Place

Paul Carter

University of Minnesota Press

Like Claddings (above), this chapter places the discourse of The Meeting Place in the context of other related work. The performative space constitutive of an encounter that will furnish a durable and just common place is defined in relation to Homi Bhabha and Edward Soja’s theorizing of the third space or the in-between. The identity of self-becoming with the performance of the in-between is illustrated by reference to the Vezo people of Mozambique. It is the emphasis on the historicity of performance that distinguishes our approach.
