Parallel Problematics? Chang Kyung-Sup’s Logic of Compressed Modernity and Critical Human Geography
Keywords:compressed modernity, South Korea, East Asia, critical human geography, time-space compression, urban developmentalism, citizenship, infrastructural familialism, familial forms
The Logic of Compressed Modernity provides a panoramic overview of Chang Kyung-Sup’s work as a pioneering, critical sociologist, and a subtle reframing of his contribution to the broader social sciences to draw out its global significance. In my contribution to this book symposium, I want to focus on how Chang’s ideas concerning compressed modernity have developed in parallel to cognate ideas and complementary approaches within human geography. And yet, surprisingly, engagement between these two critical traditions has not been as extensive as their affinities might suggest.
