Abstract and Keywords

This article aims to review and synthesize work that is currently going on in human geography and other areas of social science which addresses the questions of space, place, and time as cultural processes of spatial and temporal formation. It addresses key questions that arise when space and time are treated as constitutive elements of the work of political relation and argues that treating space and time as active constituents of political relation points towards new kinds of politics which are not just derivative of political forces but represent new and vibrant political terrains and gains. It discusses the continuing importance of political invention and suggests that hat contextual political analysis is the only meaningful form of political analysis and that this principle should be engrained in the practices of political theory.

Keywords: space, time, place, human geography, social science, cultural processes, political relation, political invention, contextual political analysis, political theory
