Making sense of the place in which we live: 'more than a feeling!'

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Making sense of the place in which we live is complex. It is certainly not simply about identifying fixed, geographical parameters, rather the concept of place is multidimensional and feelings about an area, about its community and what is valued in that place, are highly significant. Communities will comprise homogeneous and heterogeneous groups and so multiple meanings and values will be conveyed from amongst the community. consequently the ability to capture the breadth and depth of these views is warranted and invariably, this will require a highly interdisciplinary approach to be taken to make sense of these views
