This five-credit PhD workshop, “Senses of Place/Place Sensing” (online from 23 August – 25 August 2021), gives MA and PhD students a chance to explore critical debates around “sense of place” and the non-human “sensing” of place. Reading these concepts across a range of disciplinary fields, it aims to cultivate new sensitivities at the contemporary interface of environmental change, eco-critique, and social belonging.
