Description - Landscape by John Wylie

Landscape will provide a stimulating and accessible introduction to the contemporary understandings of this important concept within human geography and related disciplines such as landscape history, cultural studies and cultural anthropology. Following an introduction to notable figures and themes in the landscape tradition, the emphasis of the text is on key writings on the landscape in the last 20-30 years. In doing so, the text develops an understanding of landscape as an ensemble of practices that produce, enact and reflect relations between the natural and cultural, the spatial and the social. Rather than attempting a broad 'overview' of what is a vast and variegated terrain, the text presents a focused and accessible engagement with key writings and theorisations of landscape. To aid the student, vignettes are used to highlight key writers, papers and texts. Annotated further reading and student exercises are also included.
