The Landscape Research Group exists to generate greater understanding of, and engagement with, landscape. To do this, we sponsor events, give awards, fund research and produce the peer-reviewed journal Landscape Research and newsletter Landscape Research Extra. We are concerned with all types and aspects of landscape, from wilderness and cultural landscapes to the built environment. Our over-arching priority is to advance research that contributes towards just and sustainable relationships between people and landscape.
LRG represents (through our trustees, members and partnerships) a broad range of disciplines, including geographers, planners, landscape architects, archaeologists, ecologists and many others within the arts, humanities and sciences. Our membership is open to anyone who has an interest in landscape and hopes to broaden or deepen their understanding of this multi-faceted subject.
