McDonald, Matthew, Bridger, Alexander J., Wearing, Stephen and Ponting, Jess (2017) Consumer spaces as political spaces: a critical review of social, environmental and psychogeographical research. Social and Personality Psychology Compass, 11 (7). ISSN 1751-9004

The purpose of this review is to critique the social and environmental psychology literature on spaces and places with a focus on consumer culture and neoliberalism. By drawing on social theory and the Continental philosophical literature the review argues that an alternative approach to knowledge production is required. To this end recommendations are provided for what a psychogeographical approach in social and environmental psychology could look like. It argues that such work could be of benefit to academic and local communities by exposing the social costs and consequences associated with consumer culture and neoliberalism.
