Honoring Place: Understanding Place, Space & Displacement
In this unit, we invite the ASHE community into a conversation that explores how we understand space, place, and displacement. The scholarly engagements in this unit will challenge our understandings and relationships to space as they relate to power, violence, and assumed right to access to these spaces.
