Imagination & Place

The Committee on Imagination & Place originated in 1999 as a collaboration among the Lawrence Arts Center, Cottonwood literary review (at the time published by the Arts Center in collaboration with the University of Kansas Department of English), and the Kansas Land Trust. Its founding was inspired by a proposal put forth by New York poet Robert Kelly in his essay, “Hypnogeography,” from his 1988 book, Doctor of Silence. Kelly suggested that if dreams of place were collected, compared, and overlaid, a truer geography would appear.
