Who makes ‘sense of place’ and how does this happen? How are stories told through culture, history and heritage, both tangible and intangible, within the processes of place attachment, identity and dependency? This session explores the way that stories when communicated through notions of cultural heritage can contribute to ‘sense of place’. Papers will draw on international examples and a diversity of literature and theory from human geography, environmental psychology, sociology, leisure, cultural and heritage studies.
This session is a part of the Places, People, Stories conference an interdisciplinary & international conference. Linnaeus University, Kalmar 28-30 September 2011
