Explicating the Air: The new Smokefree (and beyond)

dc.description.abstractIn this paper, I examine how the explication of the air has figured environments, places, politics and the constitution of 'the public' in the era of smokefree. I argue in this paper that an especial imaginary of the air, one that recalls and revitalises much earlier notions of the air as bearer of miasmatic pollution, and even earlier ideas about the physical quality of the air and its relationship to the political state, has shaped how persons and places are formed and subject to inclusion and exclusion as part of the new politics of 'the public'. I draw attention to the ways in which these configurations of persons and places have relied upon the explication of the air itself, and to the consequences of explicating the air.
