Center for Excellence in the Arts and Humanities

2006-07 Programming
Peoples, Places, and Spatial Practices

 

In this programming series, held througout the fall and spring of 2006-07, CEAH examined how we turn the spaces in which we spend our lives into places where we can truly live our lives. Scholars living in different places and representing many different fields traveled to ISU to explore complex issues about how people engage with place and how places engage people. In addition to arts and humanities disciplines, this conversation was enriched by participation from the fields of agriculture, community and regional planning, journalism, mathematics, natural resource ecology and management, psychiatry, sociology, and statistics.

Cosponsors for this program included the Bioethics Program and the Committee on Lectures (funded by GSB).
