Learning from a sense of place.
Places have great meaning in our lives. We can develop powerful associations with both the countryside and the built environment. There are places we hate and places we love, places we remember and places we try to forget.
ABOUT THIS SEMINAR
This single session was open to anyone interested in exploring how they can learn more about the ways that places have influenced people. It was an interactive discussion based seminar which combined some of the theoretical approaches to this topic with an opportunity to share your thoughts about places.
