Abstract

This capstone work represents 15 years’ thinking on two questions: As we move through our lives, how do we conduct or govern ourselves and each other, and in doing so how are we to constitute the spaces and flows for a life that is flourishing? Six studies ground these reflections in terms of:
•the geographies of conception and ‘life’ before birth,
•the challenges island children will face when loss of territory also means loss of sovereignty,
•claims to the city by teenagers and young people—and skaters and parkour practitioners in particular,
•the tragedy of the war on terror and its relationship to commuting among adult workers, with reference to the London bombings,
•the ways in which older people reconcile themselves to aging and seek to stay well by being physically activity, and
•the ways in which we confront dying and death through the life-course, most especially among the oldest-old in our communities.
