Exploring place from myriad perspectives, this volume presents evocative encounters—such as the Great Barrier Reef experienced through touch or Lake Mungo encountered through sound—while shedding light on the meaning of place for deaf people. Case studies include the Maze prison in Northern Ireland, Inuit hunting grounds in northern Canada, and the songlines of the Anangu people in central Australia. Iconic landscapes, lookouts, buildings, gardens, suburbs, grieving places, and even cars all provide contexts for experiencing and understanding "place."
