Meaningful Space in Humanities

Space & Place are terms which permeate almost every discipline today. They are shorthand terms for a vast collection of disparate and sometimes contradictory concepts. And, if we add travel-related terms, the list becomes longer.

Start anywhere on this table, and think of examples within humanities that incorporate these terms. Why should the humanities care about these?

Also, think as well about how we could study these aspects of humanities. What tools, theories, thinkers, approaches could we use? How and why do these concepts matter?
