The Street functions as a location that we rarely stop to invest with a level of meaning more often attributed to destinations such as the home, school or shopping centre. However it operates as a key pedagogical location, introducing us to a range of information flows and discursive formations. These influences work in broadly implicit ways, with the transitory, fluid nature of the Street cloaking this pedagogical function.
