Abstract

It is well established that the stigmatisation of residents of socio-economically disadvantagedplaces by outsiders can have harmful consequences for those residents’ wellbeing and opportunities. However, relatively little research examines the effects of intra-neighbourhood stigmatisationon residents. We draw on Loı¨c Wacquant’s ‘advanced marginality’ thesis to explore this dynamic.We extend Wacquant’s concept of ‘territorial stigmatisation’ empirically with a social and spatialanalysis of relational ties and stigma in a disadvantaged neighbourhood in Tasmania, Australia. Thisshifts the analytical focus from insider–outsider boundary-making to the ‘micro-territories’ ofstigma production, which we argue are relationally as well as geographically constituted.
