Through a geocritical focus, the goal of this panel is to explore the significance of spatial identity. Building on the "Familiar Spirits" theme of the conference, this panel will focus on the spirit and identity of an area and its people. Topics can vary from an ecocritical approach to a tribal community's relationship with the spirit of land, to the spatial identity of post 9/11 urban landscapes, or anywhere in between.

They pass from mouth to mouth, from singers' performances to scholars' notes, from stone engravings to printed books, or from writing desks to digital editions.
