Book review: Understanding spatial media
I’ve just reviewed a new book about spatial media (and have written it from the vantage point of somebody working in Canada’s homelessness sector).
One point raised in the blog post is the fact that the language used when enumerating persons experiencing homelessness has an impact on policy discussions.
One point raised in the book itself is the fact that large subgroups of the world’s population have little if any Internet access—in Canada, this is particularly relevant to persons experiencing homelessness and to persons living in northern regions.
My full review can be accessed at this link.
