LECTURE
Place
- Place has meaning
- Location is just a position in space
- Place is about social interaction public and private gardens being built
- Place involves a physical bounding and social bounding which give meaning
- We experience the world through place
- Place is integral to the possible of experience
Space
- Space and place often confounded
- Conceptual surface like a map used to locate and access health, economic activity,
temperature etc.
o These things can be mapped in space
o Not necessarily physical
o These maps allow us to see socio-spatial inequality, understand disease
tendency
o Maps of meaning
- Many geographers work with space in this way
Place is focused on experience and space is about comparing phenomena
Place and space imply different ways of thinking about similar phenomena
Identity
- Who we are: shifts and changes over time and with context
o Example: school, church, playing field
- Struggle with reconciling these identitites
- Not simple or uniform
- Our own identities are perhaps our most important act of creation
Geopolitics
- Violence related to the division, control and contestation of territory
- Not restricted to nations and empires but neighbourhoods
Place: network of relationships
- Consciously present in a place: aware of dimensions
STORY
Polish displaced
- “you don’t belong here” so exiled
- Her father wanted to die in the place of his birth
- However people of class in communist Poland were not welcome
- He gravitated to a community with other exiled Poles
- People brought the past with them to the new place : painted farm over and over again
- Change in regime resulted in lost of property
- Godleva was Anne’s place of refuge
o It was a place of her relationships with the people, dogs, etc
o It would always be “hers” no matter the inhabiters
- Benefitting from old injustices to heal new ones
o Perhaps more concerned of the old ones than the new ones
