Competing Visions of Place

Presiding Officer: 
Danielle Crawford, University of California, Santa Cruz
Kara Hisatake, University of California, Santa Cruz

This special session examines contested representations of place, questioning how literary, visual, filmic, and archival materials can encapsulate competing visions of what a place is or should become. The session explores how these particular ideological visions of place can legitimize material acts of violence, or offer alternate re-visions.
