Comments On Nijman'S 'A Study Of Space In Mumbai'S Slums'
AbstractThis commentary on Nijman's presentation at the 100th anniversary celebration of "TESG" underlines how his study of the Mumbai slum reconciles the multiple dualisms that lie at the core of the study of economic and social geography. The dualisms that are identified are located in the personal impressions of the urban landscape, the supposed homogeneity of the informal settlements, and the assumed barriers between the informal and the formal economy. The paper argues the importance of adding a personal reflection on doing research in a slum environment. Copyright (c) 2010 by the Royal Dutch Geographical Society KNAG.
