Geog 3: Notes week 1 Continued and Week 2 Lecture 3 and 4 Reading: Swentzell , Grazian , Gottdiener . Lecture continued… 3) Law’s piece: about Filipina migrant workers in Hong Kong… Creation of Little Manila: sensory landscape = evocation of place through senses such as smell, taste, and sound. The original positioning within Hong Kong account of their vulnerable citizenships and labor status is part of how and when they have come to create their ‘sensory landscape. Their community gathering displayed by the Filipino migrant workers embed a politics of resistance. 4) Basso: memory, language and place. Place-world: world ties to and imagined through place. Different relationship to the land/landscape from the dominant Anglo/American viewpoint: the Apache do not have maps – maps leave only English name – topographic map based on Apache forms of naming places. “Our ancestors made this name. They made it just as it is. They made it for a reason. They spoke first, a long time ago. He’s repeating the speech of our ancestors (Basso, p. 10). Form of naming by Apache: 1) In some cases they describe the place with rich and descriptive imagery; 2) In other place, place-name offer evidence of change in the landscape; 3) In some places, name commemorates things or important events – example: Shades of Shit, which tells a story about the repercussion of refusing to share with your relatives. Spatial conception of history: way of understanding the past in relation to specific places. These four pieces helps to understand places beyond the ‘visual’ – experiencing places through the senses: hearing, smelling, etc. Politics of location: what it is at stake. How we/our bodies are situated/positioned/located in relation to others on account of a number of different factors, including, gender, race, class, social status, etc. The politics of location shape people embodied experience of and in relationship to place.

How do organizations of space and place shape people’s experiences, behaviors, and relationships? Landscape: The arrangement or pattern of things on land: the look or style of the land, the shape and structure of a place. Landscape, like space and place embodies social processes. 1
