Week 10 examined the regional-local continuum and how people perceive issues based on their understanding of a city or region. Janet Bednarek used several examples to show the different ways people identify the cities and regions they live in. Prior to class, the students participated in an online discussion about social issues surrounding rivers and how those issues can be viewed from a local or regional perspective. St. Louis was discussed as an example of how a river can serve as an economic and racial divide.
