About the Author

Dawn Lyon is Reader in Sociology at the University of Kent, UK.


It is hard to imagine a more engaging, yet succinct introduction to Henri Lefebvre's rhythmanalysis. Surveying the most relevant cross-disciplinary work while continually demonstrating how rhythmanalysis is a practicable method, this book is illuminating and generative in equal measure. * Gregory J. Seigworth, Professor of Communication Studies, Millersville University, USA *
Starting with Lefebvre's thought and tracing its evolution through the current times across the social sciences, Lyon's book presents rhythmanalysis as a family of concepts, a research strategy and a set of field practices intended to sensitize students and scholars to undertake empirical research with attention to the flows of rhythm. The book demystifies the often-misunderstood but ever so popular concept through clear and practical terms and examples, showing us how to better understand social life through the perspective of rhythm and the role of time in the production, imagination, experience, and representation of multiple social realities. * Phillip Vannini, Professor and Canada Research Chair, Royal Roads University, Canada *
Dawn Lyon's invitation to consider the methodological benefits of adopting rhythmanalysis as a research tool is a no-nonsense, bracing account that generously treats readers to a wealth of empirical examples and theoretical ideas. Rescuing Lefebvre's contentions from the realm of arcane scholarly debate, Lyon provides a wide-ranging, lucid and convivial exploration that grounds rhythmic experience in everyday living while simultaneously extending ways in which rhythm may be conceptualised. * Tim Edensor, Reader in Cultural Geography, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK *
A timely contribution. While rhythmanalysis to date has not been a well-defined methodology, or at least can as much reveal the idiosyncrasies of the researcher, her book offers a clear and thoughtful attempt to characterize what rhythmanalysis might actually look like for a wide range of researchers. * Sunil Manghani, Professor of Theory, Practice and Critique, University of Southampton, UK *
