How do we navigate the contested forces of stability and change in a world shaped by multiple interconnected global challenges? For the authors and editors of Changing Senses of Place: Navigating Global Challenges, an essential step is revisiting the concept of sense of place.
You are cordially invited to the book launch where you will hear from the editors of the book who will address the vital question of how to navigate the contested forces of stability and change in a world shaped by multiple interconnected global challenges. They will make the case that the concept of sense of place needs to be revisited, given that places and our experiences of place are changing. For example, through climate and ecological regime shifts, refugee crises, and post-national territorial claims.
The book launch will be an opportunity to learn about the latest advances in senses of place scholarship, and how to design and manage for senses of place in the face of global challenges that are rapidly changing the world we live in. There will also be time for audience questions and academic discussion on critical aspects underpinning a transit towards more complex and plural experiences of senses of place.
