This contribution to the video lexicon for community geography focuses on the term "community." The video begins by defining what community geographers mean when they use the term and why they use it, followed by examples of various ways that communities can be defined. The video concludes with a meta discussion about how community geographers can also create community through their scholarship and practice.
