Panel discussion: Language and landscape governance
Panel discussion and Q&A from LRG's Annual Symposium 2018
LRG’s annual International Landscape Symposium 2018 was held in London on 4 December, and explored one of the key themes in our Research Strategy: landscape justice, with a focus on language and landscape governance.
The debate explored the relationships in language between the local and the global, from the four very different perspectives of our speakers: literature and landscape word-hoards, landscape architecture, public participation in landscape governance, and shaping regional and global perceptions, for example through the European Landscape Convention and UNESCO.
The event also commemorated David Lowenthal (1923-2018), co-founder of LRG and the organisation’s former Chair. His book, Quest for the Unity of Knowledge, was also launched at the event, in partnership with Pages of Hackney and Routledge.
