The case-histories reveal a common set of spatial themes and practices across four localities that diverge in their histories, cultures, and geographical sizes and locations. They demonstrate the empirical unity of what was theorised as social spatialisation – a social construction of the spatial and its imposition and enactment in the real topography of the world. It would be possible to multiply the examples that support this argument, but the cases presented here are sufficient to establish the point as a basis on which further research will proceed. I have attempted to show that social spatialisation, which was introduced as a ‘ungraspable’ and ineffable cultural formation, can be rendered visible and specified not just through theory but across various empirical case-histories.
