Project Affiliates

The Iowa Project on Place Studies is not a membership organization.  Project Affiliates are those interested in place studies who desire to establish an official, though informal, relationship with IPOPS.  One of the main purposes of IPOPS is to foster connections between those engaged in place studies.  Project Affiliates listed here are open to being contacted for possible collaboration.
