Landscape Citizenships, edited by Tim Waterman, Jane Wolff, and Ed Wall, is to be published by Routledge in June 2021. The edited book has been developed from the Landscape Citizenships symposium, a collaboration between University of Greenwich, University of Toronto, UCL, and NMBU Centre for Landscape Democracy, funded by the Landscape Research Group and University of Greenwich.
Landscape Citizenships, featuring work by academics from North America, Europe, and the Middle East, extends the growing body of thought and research in landscape democracy and landscape justice. Landscape, as a milieu of situated everyday practice in which people make places and places make people in an inextricable relation, is proving a powerful concept for conceiving of politics and citizenships as lived, dialogic, and emplaced.
Grounded in the discourses of ecological, environmental, watershed, and bioregional citizenships, this edited collection evaluates belonging through the idea of landscape as landship which describes substantive, mutually constitutive relations between people and place. With a strong international focus across fourteen chapters, it delves into key topics such as marginalization, indigeneity, globalization, politics, and the environment, before finishing with an epilogue written by Kenneth R. Olwig.
This volume will appeal to scholars and activists working in citizenship studies, migration, landscape studies, landscape architecture, ecocriticism, and the many disciplines which converge around these topics, from design to geography, anthropology, politics, and much more.
The book is available to pre-order here.
