The Landscape Research Group is involved in the organization of a European conference on Energy Landscapes: Perception, Planning, Participation and Power which will take place on September 16-18, 2015, in Dresden, Germany.
Key questions raised by the conference are:
- Perception – How is the character, perception, assessment and social construction of landscapes influenced by present and past uses of energy?
- Planning – Which types of landscape-related planning and governance regimes exist and how are they linked to landscape planning, spatial planning and energy policy?
- Participation – In the face of energy transitions, to what extent are landscape policies inclusive and participatory? Which actors are involved and who is constituted as an actor in this regard?
- Power – Which power relations shape the interplay of energies and landscapes? How can the workings of power be conceptualised and critically reflected?
Further information about the call for papers can be found via the conference website.
