This project represents both a sustained engagement with a particular place – the Maze – in the form of a series of creative reflections and public scholarship, as well as a series of reflections on the process of engaging with a particular place that are currently being tailored for David Haskell’s courses on Sewanee and the Southern Appalachians as part of his Fall and Spring term loads. It also represents a sustained engagement with the question of how interdisciplinary work can be done with respect to place, and an engagement with many and varied vectors- disciplines vis-a-vis other disciplines, disciplines vis-a-vis particular places, disciplines vis-a-vis themselves – which formed part of this Maze project experience.
