About the Authors
  • Global challenges ranging from climate change and ecological regime shifts to refugee crises and post-national territorial claims are rapidly moving ecosystem thresholds and altering the social fabric of societies worldwide. This book addresses the vital question of how to navigate the contested forces of stability and change in a world shaped by multiple interconnected global challenges. It proposes that senses of place is a vital concept for supporting individual and social processes for navigating these contested forces and encourages scholars to rethink how to theorise and conceptualise changes in senses of place in the face of global challenges. It also makes the case that our concepts of sense of place need to be revisited, given that our experiences of place are changing. This book is essential reading for those seeking a new understanding of the multiple and shifting experiences of place.

    • Includes interdisciplinary and international perspectives on people-place relationships and how they can be brought together into a coherent understanding of multiple and shifting experiences of place in a context of increased uncertainty and socio-spatial precarity
    • Provides salient examples of how senses of place concepts and applications can be applied to specific global challenges such as climate change and ecological regime shifts; migration, mobility and belonging; renewable energy transitions; nationalism and competing territorial claims, and; urban change
    • Introduces a more inclusive dynamic and responsive approach to people-place relationships to show how we can navigate and respond to an increasing complex and uncertain world
