In the fifth Anthropology@Deakin podcast, David Giles (Deakin University) and guest Melinda Hinkson (Deakin University) discuss illumination and space with Tim Edensor (RMIT/Manchester Metropolitan University). Tim is the author of Tourists at the Taj, National Identity, Popular Culture and Everyday Life, and Industrial Ruins: Space, Aesthetics and Materiality, and From Light to Dark: Daylight, Illumination and Gloom, as well as the editor of Geographies of Rhythm: Nature, Place, Mobilities and Bodies.
