This ongoing line of inquiry explores new approaches to the description, analysis, and comparison of landscapes in a globalizing age. Drawing on geography, anthropology, cultural landscape studies, ecology, and landscape architecture, the work that we undertake in this area considers landscapes as dynamic and ever-changing forms that emerge at the intersection of material conditions and human spatial imaginaries. We are especially interested in the study of landscapes that defy easy categorization as urban or rural, natural or human-made, central or peripheral--and in so doing, reveal the limitations of such ready taxonomies. After all, much of the descriptive terminology and analytic apparatus that we apply to landscape studies originates not as universal, transhistorical categories of meaning, but rather as highly particular to Global North / European intellectual traditions.
