Abstract

People “live” and constitute places through recurrent practices and experience. Both agency and experience are rooted in cultural embeddings that vary across different world regions. The complexity this entails requires researchers to investigate the concept of place through a variety of cultural lenses. The formal representation of place in GIScience is no exception and can only be successfully addressed if we consider geographical, psychological, linguistical, sociological, cognitive, and other perspectives taking account of cultural specificities. How can we represent not only place but also its cultural aspects? How can we be more inclusive when conceptualizing place to also include marginalized communities? Is it even possible to find structures of place that extend beyond cultural anchoring? These and other related questions have been addressed at PLATIAL'21 bringing together researchers from different disciplines to discuss the current state of theoretical and applied platial research.
