About Place Studies
Place Studies is an online magazine, discussion forum, and research source for the study of place. It's about how we experience places, how they influence us, and how literary and artistic works shape our perception of places. It also features many sketches or "studies" of particular places around the world, with special attention to New York and NYU's study abroad sites.
The study of place is interdisciplinary, and there's a vast and every-growing bibliography of books, articles, and websites. Place Studies joins a list of several other sites (notably Research on Place and Space and the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment) intended to help students, teachers, literary critics, historians, geographers, architects, anthropologists, landscape historians, writers, and artists in their studies of the many ways literature and place come together.
