As part of my PhD dissertation, I have been conducting research on the role of places as teachers in human lives. Please check out my interactive website devoted to learning more about how humans connect with place around the world. You can follow this project on Facebook
and are encouraged to use #transformativeplaces and #greatnature
when sharing. Now it is your turn to tell a story of a transformative place (or places) online. Please visit my site, watch Wade Davis, Iona Campagnolo, May Sam, and Claudia Li return to their childhood and adolescent transformative places, then visit your own transformative place and upload videos, pictures, stories, poetry, or whatever suits your fancy through the interactive map or discussion areas.
