1 – Lecture: Landscape across Cultures. On Land Use, Imagination and Identity

In the slipstream of ecological debates the topic of landscape comes to the fore with a multilayered understanding including transdisciplinary and transcultural perspectives. Most human beings rely on a sense of place and carry images and perceptions of and values attached to landscapes or environments that were relevant for their identity building. Such spaces and ideas form the backdrop of socialization and individuation but also of landscape development. This talk focusses on landscape as a human attitude towards nature and on their manifold sources and histories.
