Senses of Place – SAR 2021 Summer Series

Over the summer of 2021, the School for Advanced Research presented Senses of Place, a summer series of online discussions exploring the cultural significance of place.

Over four events, speakers offered new insights on the connections between diverse cultures, and illustrated how place impacts the spaces created by cultures living in unique environments and historical circumstances.
