Part  1:  Exploring  Sense  of  Place  
Back  to  the  1970s  –  Humanist  Geography  
What  is  it  like  to  experience  living  in  a  place?  
What  does  it  mean  to  feel  rooted?  
Concern  about  ‘placelessness’  and  ‘non-­‐
•  Is  this  becoming  less  common  with  
increasingly  similar  towns  and  ci>es  and  with  
increasing  levels  of  mobility?  

What  is  a  Place?  
•  ‘Place  is  one  of  the  trickiest  words  in  the  
English  language,  a  suitcase  so  overfilled  that  
one  can  never  shut  the  lid’  (Hayden,  1997,  

What  is  a  Place?  
•  ‘A  por>on  of  land/town/cityscape  seen  from  
the  inside,  the  resonance  of  a  specific  loca>on  
that  is  known  and  familiar  …    
•  Place  is  la>tudinal  and  longitudinal  within  the  
map  of  a  person’s  life.  It  is  temporal  and  
spa>al,  personal  and  poli>cal.  A  layered  
loca>on  replete  with  human  histories  and  
memories,  place  has  width  as  well  as  depth.  It  
is  about  connec>ons,  what  surrounds  it,  what  
formed  it,  what  happened  there,  what  will  
happen  there’  (Lippard,  1997,  page  7)  

Place  in  academic  thinking  
•  Keystone  of  geography,  planning,  architecture,  
environmental  psychology.    
•  Place  as  combinaGon  of:  
–  physical  locaGon,    
–  locale  or  social  relaGons,    
–  sense  of  place  (Agnew,  1987).  

•  Sense  of  place  as  combinaGon  of:  
–  symbolic  meanings  and    
–  emo0onal  bonds  (Williams,  2014).  

Thinking  with  Place  
•  ‘Place  is  not  just  a  thing  in  the  world  …  place  is  
also  a  way  of  seeing,  knowing  and  
understanding  the  world.  When  we  look  at  the  
world  as  a  world  of  places  we  see  different  
things.  We  see  aQachments  and  connec>ons  
between  people  and  place.  We  see  worlds  of  
meaning  and  experience’  (Cresswell,  2003,  

•  Historically  associated  with  the  word  ‘haven’,  which  
dates  back  before  the  12th  century  
•  Related  meanings:  
•  Harbour:  place  where  ships  may  shelter  from  the  
weather  or  are  stored  
•  Sanctuary  -­‐  a  consecrated  area  or  a  place  of  safety:  
–  The  garden  was  a  haven  from  the  noise  and  bustle  of  
the  city.  
–  They  wanted  to  provide  safe  havens  for  the  refugees.
