 Augé, Marc. Non-places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity. Trans.     John Howe. New York: Verso, 1995.

In this article, Augé describes how the increasingly ubiquitous usage of fast means of transportation and communication in the industrialized world, have altered people’s perception of space and time in an environment that is under constant “accelerated transformation”. Augé argues that such environment gives rise to a new type of anthropology: the anthropology of supermodernity, and to the creation of non-places – that is – places which are devoid of any identity, stability, or history.
