AWP Panel, Space Is the Place: Literary Spatialities and New Approaches to Placemaking (San Antonio, TX)

Just as there has been a “spatial turn” in the humanities more broadly, writers have been creating powerful, evocative settings with sensitive and sophisticated approaches to space, place, and cartography. Panelists will discuss how we create and consider real and unreal urban landscapes, wilderness, borderlands, and ecologies of built spaces, with particular attention to how space and place dovetail into identity, the crisis of territoriality, and the trauma of displacement.
