Bridger, Alexander J. (2009) Psychogeography, September 11th 2001 and the Aftermath: Extending Qualitative Methods in Psychology. Doctoral thesis, Manchester Metropolitan University.Metadata only available from this repository.
This thesis demonstrates why it is important to engage with and carry out psychogeographical research in psychology and why a psychogeographical turn to place is needed. I begin with a critique of mainstream experimental psychological attitudinal and behavioural responses to the events of September 11 2001. I draw on responses from psychology, mass media theory and situationism. Elements of discursive theory will be drawn on to demonstrate the importance of going beyond an analysis of words to study images and places. News reports in British newspapers of the World Trade Center attacks will be critically evaluated in relation to the day afterwards and then in explaining how the events were commemorated one and five years on.
