Students can become members of Landscape Research at 50% of the costs of professional subscriptions.
We are particularly interested in developing our postgraduate membership.
With this new web page, we introduce a development of our longstanding UK-based Postgraduate Research Awards, which we now extend to include international, English language-based PhD theses applicants for the first time, as well as undergraduate applicants. We will be initiating an online postgraduate student journal in 2012, and are investigating the possibilities for a research training programme that will reflect the range of disciplines that are attuned to this topic.
Landscape is a complex and important topic in a range of fields. It is the essential intellectual, material and cultural context for understanding the changing face of our global environment. A fairly recent (Oct 2010) policy briefing by the European Science Foundation Landscape in a Changing World identifies landscape as the ‘human element’ of our environment. Landscape plays a keystone role in new approaches to inter, intra and trans-disciplinary approaches to research and its subsequent relationship to policy and practice. Important landscape research is underway in areas of knowledge that range from the architecture, art, design, cultural geography, environmental management, history, landscape architecture, material geography, philosophy, planning and science.
