In what ways has unsettling or restlessness been used to construct a
sense of place? Place-based environmental thought is predicated upon the
idea of rootedness. This session seeks papers that speak to movement, to
learning more than one place, to perambulatory or migratory knowledge or
ways of knowing, and their distinctive types of intimacy, memory,
viability.=20
