It is packed full of insight, so this is a first post of several — too many, because much of what she discusses here honestly has not come my way before quite like this. It is a critique of those theorists who have found the city to be most worthy of critique — like Wirth, Miller, Simmel — to build upon those who have sought to understand what makes it work, what makes cities the places of choice for so many to live.

How do you defining a city? Lofland shifts this lightly, to define it as a permanently populous place or settlement. In my own experience this has been far from true, I hope soon we may reach a point where this is not the automatic default. From the city, she moves on to define public space — starting with a general dictionary definition: space which is open to all persons, in contrast to private space which is not open or accessible to the general public.

Again, she shifts it slightly to look at the public realm instead, which is such a much more interesting concept really. A first take on it, is that it is: constituted of those areas of urban settlements in which individuals in copresence tend to be personally unknown or only categorically known to one another.

They can overlap, coexist in the same space, grow or shrink or disappear. Lofland looks at three — the public, the private, and the parochial realms. Also interesting is how these distinctions permeate space rather than remain bounded by it.

Lofland writes: realms are not geographically or physically rooted pieces of space. They are social, not physical territories. Whether any actual physical space contains a realm at all and, if it does, whether that realm is private, is parochial, or is public is not the consequence of some immutable culturally or legally given designation claiming, for example, this street is public space, this yard is private space.

It is, rather, the consequence of the proportions and densities of relationship types present and these proportions and densities are themselves fluid. I love this, it gets to the nuances of spaces and how we inhabit them. It is flexible enough to sense different kinds of spatial inhabitations: But if a group is large enough, it can … transform the character of a substantial portion of the space within which it is located.

And spaces have histories. Even those that are consensually defined at one time may be redefined or subject to warring definitions at another time.

Of course, there is some connection between physical space and relational forms: private realm — intimate physical space parochial realm — some physical space is communal public realm — some physical space is stranger or categorical 14 I love — of course — how she then goes on to contextualise this in the historical development of cities.

It very much echoes Sitte funnily enough: …in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries in Britain and northern Europe and later throughout the rest of the world , the Industrial Revolution wrought a critical shift in the relationships between private, parochial, and public realms. That is, social life and public life overlapped in the preindustrual city to a remarkable degree… 15 I am still getting my head around this because actually it is so hard to imagine sitting in a comfortable home so far removed from this daily reality.

One of the reasons why I love literature. Everyone but elites walked everywhere this struck me so much reading Dickens for example. Also it was in the public realm that women once secured the water for the household, disposed of garbage and body waste the public realm consisted of outhouses at best…lovely thought.

At the same time private space was cold, damp, crowded, uncomfortable… For many people to be in the public realm was to be warm instead of cold, cool, instead of hot.

It was to move into space — however teeming with people — less cramped than home. In sum, the preindustrial city was overwhelmingly a city characterized by the dominance of public life. Lofland notes the two principal characteristics, which form this change: 1 innovations in forms of transport allowed this city to be much larger in area than its preindustrial ancestor… and 2 innovations in construction and communication allowed this city to enclose many more activities than had cities of the past.

To put it briefly, these two characteristics — enlargement and enclosure — together made possible the separation of workplace from place of residence, made possible the development of highly specialized and large workplaces … made possible the development of homogeneous and large areas of residence e.
