Abstract

This article examines the disconnect that exists between conceptualisations of space in the academic discipline and pre-university subject of Geography. Utilising the works of key thinkers on space - including Doreen Massey, David Harvey and Henri Lefebvre - it argues that exploring the ‘production of space’ in pre-university geography can help to facilitate a richer understanding of the concept of space in young people. To illuminate these discussions, it draws on data from doctoral research that explored the question ‘what do young people’s narratives reveal about their geographies and imaginations of London?’ The article focuses on national identity, generally, and specifically ‘being British’, because the theme emerged from the analysis. This theme exemplifies the rich discourse the ‘production of space’ can encourage with young people.
