Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Panelists will discuss individual research projects into the relationship between place and identity at various sites in and around Asheville. A growing literature in Sociology and Anthropology that human beings and social groups become what they are in places, that places structure human activity and identity just as people with particular identities structure places. Places thus give sociologists and anthropologists observable clues about people in those places, the problems they face, and the way they have gone about solving those problems. Panelists will summarize their research individually and then discuss projects in light of the larger aims of their disciplines.
