LRG Student Dissertation Awards, 2014

The LRG Student Dissertation Award Scheme is open for 2014. We request submissions that explore an interdisciplinary approach to landscape. In 2014 LRG set long-range priorities for research. As a result the next few years of awards will prioritise work that is relevant to pressing societal challenges with a landscape dimension and research that contributes to the development of society’s understanding and respond to these challenges.

We are especially interested in landscape research:

– that responds to injustice
– that responds to the challenges of rapid environmental change
– that considers short-term decision-making and narrow franchise
– that challenges established norms through creative work.

Landscape Disciplines
We welcome applications from a broad base of disciplines that encourage an interdisciplinary approach. Our categories include, but are not limited by the following list.

  • Art and Design: architecture, art, design and landscape architecture.
  • Humanities: Including cultural geography, history, literature or philosophy.
  • Science, Planning and Management: archaeology, environmental management, material geography, planning and natural science.

We reserve the discretion to award up to:

  • three Doctoral Prizes at £500
  • three Masters Prizes at £350
  • Undergraduate Prizes at £250
