Research and the Social Work Picture

Ian Shaw

Policy Press

This chapter explores the ways in which awareness of the meaning and importance of place is shared between the humanities and social work. Moving on to a consideration of the term globalisation, this leads on to a more general consideration of how research practices occur in space and place. In all of this, ‘time’ and ‘place’ are high-level concepts by which scholars structure and make sense of the world, and use effortlessly all the time, yet are quite unable to define. In approaching these issues, distance or closeness of place and space raise comparable questions to those of time closeness or distance.

Keywords:   social work, humanities, time, space, place, globalisation, distance
