Former student Rori Knudtson was appointed director of CPH at the School of Critical Engagement. The School of Critical Engagement is operating with / within the processes, participants, protagonists, systems, and stakeholders, that make / construct place. Place develops through interactions between human and non-human systems, nature and culture, people and space, individuals and collectives, and hegemonial and marginalized cultures and identities. Place is more than the ground on which change occurs, place is an active agent. Place is critical and needs to be critically engaged.
