Research - Spring 2015 (FAS 120: People, Places, and Pasts) Student work

In this assignment, I asked my students to explore the specific, culturally determined ways people interact with their environment. I asked them to show me how the place they chose constructs identity and vice versa. They had to pick a place and explore how it was important to the Franco community they were studying.
