Abstract

Yi-Fu Tuan published extensively in a number of outlets throughout his long career, including in the Geographical Review between 1968 and 2002. While Tuan’s influence on research and teaching in geography was far reaching, he also inspired scholars in other disciplines, such as education and environmental psychology. This retrospective essay commemorates Tuan’s relationship with the Geographical Review and brings together a diverse group of scholars in geography, science education, and environmental psychology, who address Tuan’s influence on their professional and personal lives, research, and teaching. Reoccurring themes across all the individual essays include place, home, and human experience. In addition, each author stresses the broader implications of Tuan’s scholarship on peace, love, caring, and belonging.
