Abstract

Addresses one of human geography's central problems, the lack of an agreed agenda or methodology, by arguing for a refocus on place. The author outlines a methodological framework for understanding the interactions of individual and collective perpections and experiences of place. The concept is illustrated by three case studies of the north and south of the UK and the US, showing how the experience of place in the past and in the present manifests itself through culture and territoriality in both consensual and conflicting ways. The study represents a contribution to wider discussions about the nature and practice of human geography rather than a summation of what the discipline is, could, or should be. -after Author
