Creighton University Department of English


March 11-13, 2016 at Creighton University


At the root of every critical discussion, from politics to religion to student affairs, is a discussion of space, place, and location — where am I? Where can I go? Who else is here? Who cares?

Place holds a particular importance in understanding society and the social relations within it. With questions on the importance of this "ever-shifting social geometry of power and signification" (Massey 1994) that is the 'spatial,' "You Are Here," is a conference dedicated to exploring the questions and implications of space and place.
