Making Sense of Place is a book of selected proceedings from the Senses of Place conference held in Hobart in 2006. Printed in colour with an accompanying DVD, it explores place from myriad perspectives and through evocative encounters. The Barrier Reef is experienced through the sense of touch, Lake Mungo is encountered through sound and ‘listening’, and light is shed on the meaning of place for deaf people. Case studies include the Maze prison, Inuit hunting grounds, and the songlines of the Anangu people. Iconic landscapes, lookouts, gardens, grieving places, the ‘car place’ – all provide contexts for experiencing and understanding place.
