Countries in Our Blood Thailand's Red Shirt Protests and the Politics of Space

View Full Record
Description: This study examines the ways that space is implicated in relations of power using Thailand's Red Shirt "Blood Sacrifice" in March 2010. Theorists such as Shome (2006) and Massey (2005) postulate a reengagement with the conceptualization of space as an active component in power relations. Assuming that "space" is constructed out of social relations, I argue that Thailand's "nation-space" is fundamentally created out of the tensions arising from the politically motivated actions of its citizens. The Red Shirt Protests of 2010 demonstrate how social relations are structured through human agency to create social space.
