International Association for the Study of Environment, Space, and Place 5th annual conference. April 24-26, 2009
To forbid is a moral command limiting human freedom by prohibiting doing, having, using, or indulging in something somewhere, or in the entering of some place. Place signifies a spatial nexus of meanings involving both a sector within the earthly horizon—an identifiable place, and a spatial production, an event—taking place. Forbidden place can mean an agency of natural origin—an active volcano. Forbidden place can mean a social production that places limitations on when (time restraints), where (boundaries), who (social discrimination), and what (proscribing certain actions). Thus, the forbidden can involve any proscription within places or setting off limits some places altogether.
IAESP seeks to foster interdisciplinary / transdisciplinary conversations and is holding its Fifth Annual Conference at Towson University in Towson, MD. Presentations should not exceed 25 minutes. Please consider audience diversity while preparing your presentation.
