Affective engagement with coastal places: An Irish case study
(Coastal residents’ affective engagement with the natural and constructed environment.)
Liz Morris-Webb and Tomas Buitendijk
We used a mixed-methods approach informed by Actor-Network Theory (and grounded in new materialism) to better understand the importance of local residents’ cultural connection(s) to specific places on the coast. We hope this knowledge will help to predict people’s likelihood to support or resist planned landscape changes.
