Abstract

This research sought to determine if participation in protests at the neighborhood level resulted in a change in the participants' sense of place. The research relied on a case study conducted in the Boulevard Oaks and Southampton Neighborhoods in Houston, Texas. The research relied on historic analysis and in-depth interviews with neighborhood residents who participated in protests. The findings support the hypothesis that participation in protests will alter sense of place.
