What happens when personal identities and place meanings conflict? How to people interact with rural nature?

in collaboration with UVM Geography colleague Dr Harlan Morehouse, I am researching how people use dowsing as a tool to make land use and other environmental decisions in a context of environmental change. This research is underway in the UK and the Northeast US.
