"Geography is one of the structures of how we understand society and space, practised, inter alia, by seeing, dwelling, collecting, travelling, mapping, representing, recording, and narrating; an approach which encourages a focus on complexity, multiplicity, and relational thinking. It would take considerable temerity to find a unifying definition throughout the twists and turns that the discipline has taken." (Mayhew, Susan, 2009, A Dictionary of Geography, Oxford University Press, accessed 20 August 2014 from Oxford Reference.)
