    Abstract

    The concept of "region" in ways, explicit and implicit, has framed academic practices in the social sciences. A recent workshop focused on the category of region by raising new questions and speculating on directions for future research. Among the concerns raised, some related to region and its specificity to a location; how language and history shape region; the relativity of identities and practices to region; the region as a "fragment" within a larger national space or identity and how cinematic representations give an added dimension to the concept of region.
