GPHY 101: November 13, 2018 - Week 10 Place Making and Identity
Spotlight speaker: Dr. Leela Viswanathan
Main Lecture:
The Wilderness of Algonquin Park
o Exclusion
You have to have a way of transport to get there
If you don’t have a car, you’re out of luck
The cost to get it
The history of the park
The park used to be logged, which made it exclusive of other
activities that could potentially happen there
Indigenous issues
When the park was created, not thought was given to
indigenous peoples
In creating the park, they kicked them out
Place and Identity
o Racialization
“The practice of creating unequal castes based on the norm of
whiteness” (textbook ch.5)
Example: Chinatown
Can be seen as places of exclusion serving to segregate
people from the rest of white society
Place and Human Experience
o Places are dynamic
Everyplace is constantly changing (bedroom, university, country)
Physical changes are the most obvious
o The meanings of places also change
We change as we go to different places
We cannot go back to the same places we went in our childhood
because we would feel different and it would be with different
people
