Humans live in places, the positions from which they perceive space as a series of landscapes. While space/time is the context that encompasses life and all of its possibilities and constraints, the perception of space is continuously constructed, and deconstructed, through geopolitical, social, and economic—in a word, cultural—drivers. Notions of nature, ecology, resources, and well-being are fundamental dimensions of such a process.

The 65th American Studies Association of Texas (ASAT) Conference will be held November 2-4, 2022, at Collin College-Frisco, Texas. Our conference theme is “Space & Autonomy.” While scholars and researchers in various disciplines have examined the relationship between space and autonomy for centuries, perhaps millennia, our need to negotiate between these two concepts has never been more pressing: we have had to reconsider our personal and public spaces in the face of a pandemic; we have had to reconceive of the geography of our urban spaces and infrastructure to confront climate change; we have had to maneuver around the constantly shifting political climate in a fractious nation; and we have had to negotiate the ever expanding realm of cyberspace.
