A sense of place

Bruce Hannon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Researchers at the University of Illinois have presented a paper on the stewardship workshop on religion and the environment. The inhabitants of particular places are much likelier to know and care for those places than those who are not from that place. The fanners too have a sense of their place, both aesthetically and economically. The extended families within the larger groups seem to travel in circuits, probably to add some predictability to their nomadic lifestyle. A sense of place acquired by reading about an environmental threat might lead one to join and contribute financially to say the Sierra Club in support of its Washington lobbying efforts. a sense of a new place can be acquired through a focused and persistent effort by the individuals. It is possible to start with the local sense of place and extend the awareness to the larger scale.
