The objective of this project is to encourage new ways of thinking about
the meaning and significance of space. It follows a desire that has been
expressed and theorized by Henri Lefebvre – and by extension Edward W.
Soja – to remove Spatiality from the margin of the „Trialectics of
Being“ and to bring it into the „Trialectics´ fold“ alongside with –
and of at least equal significance to – Historicality and Sociality. The
thesis focuses on how space of the Pilbara region in Western Australia
is produced in contemporary Australian writing, film, art and through
„lived experience“. The thesis argues for an understanding of space as
essentially dynamic.
