Landscape Citizenships: a symposium
16th November 2018
“The land we all live on is simply taken for granted–and proper relation to it is not considered a part of ‘citizenship.’ “
–Gary Snyder (1995:223)
“Land … is something to which a people belong, as to a commonwealth.”
–Kenneth Olwig (2005:20)
The question of citizenship is hugely important to landscape justice, especially as we are entering an age of increased migration, which will make enlightened definitions of citizenship crucial for peaceful negotiations of landscape inhabitation.
This one-day symposium builds upon an existing network of scholars interested in the subject of landscape and agency.
In partnership with the Centre for Landscape and Democracy (CLAD) and supported by LRG.
