Question:

How has the Spanish language and culture impacted the U.S.?

Answer:

Goodness, where to start! From music to food to people, it's impossible to imagine an America without thinking about the hundreds or years of interaction that have created the country we live in today. While some cultural exchanges have been degrading and derogatory, take for instance the borrowing of words from Spanish into English as a way to mock or "perform" the language, negative stereotypes, racism, and exclusion, other examples of latinx culture in the U.S. show that this nation is stronger because of it's range of diversity and inclusion of other walks of life. Miami wouldn't be the city it is without its Cuban influence!

Question:

Would the world be better without borders?

Answer:

While this is a very broad question with room for debate on both sides, I think it's important to first consider what a "border" is: Much more than it is a line in the physical earth separating one nation from another, a border is first a mental conceptualization, another way in which humans have sought to categorize the world around them. It's this "categorizing" which has led to territoriality, a need to first separate the "us" from "them", and then the urge to protect the "us" through all sorts of innocuous and also malevolent means. I will end not by fully answering my own question but to propose another: Is it even possible from humankind to live without some kind of physical and conceptual borders?

Question:

What defines "place"? How do we as humans create "place" in our space?

Inactive

Answer:

Typically, "place" is understood in Geography to be both a physical and abstract experience of space; it is created through a complex dynamic among many forces and factors, like human wants and needs, historical memory, territoriality, culture, nature, and destruction all playing out on a physical piece of land ("space"). Place can come to mean a neighborhood with a distinct feel, or simply the feeling that your own neighborhood gives you: nostalgia, safety, happiness, etc.
