This is the first of two back-to-back sessions investigating the relationship between language and landscape, and language and space. Language and geography interact in many ways, and at many scales. Scholars from fields such as cultural geography, linguistic anthropology, sociology, computer science, and political science share in the endeavor to understand the relationship between language and space. This session focuses on spatial aspects of language, language and power, and local environmental discourses.
