|Title:||Senses of Urban Character||Contributor(s):||Dovey, Kim (author); Wood, Stephen (author) ; Woodcock, I (author)||Publication Date:||2008||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/2159||Abstract:||What does it mean to say that a place has 'character'? This is a term that is applied to both people and places, often implying an identity with a certain authenticity or distinction. Across our cities, 'urban character' is defended in older suburbs and created in ones - preserved and constructed. In-depth interviews with residents from a range of locations across the Melbourne metropolitan area in 2004 revealed that the experience and discourse of 'character' encompass a range of understandings of place identity.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Making Sense of Place: Exploring concepts and expressions of place through different senses and lenses, p. 229-237||Publisher:||National Museum of Australia Press||Place of Publication:||Canberra, Australia||ISBN:||9781876944513||Field of Research (FOR):||120501 Community Planning||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://books.google.com.au/books?id=bXKbHwAACAAJ&dq
