What would it mean to fully embrace the concept of landscape as a milieu of situated, everyday practices, encompassing the mutually constitutive relations between people and place? Might understanding key topics such as marginalization, indigeneity, globalization, resource degradation and extraction through the framework of landscape citizenships foster new ways of being and belonging in landscapes? And how can landscape studies, a field with roots in Western cartographic and imperial traditions, establish scholarly and activist frameworks that facilitate inclusivity, belonging, and justice?

On Friday, October 29, Tim WatermanJane Wolff, and Ed Wall—co-editors of the recently published edited volume Landscape Citizenships (Routledge, 2021)—will join Thaïsa Way, Director of Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks, to consider these and other questions in a roundtable discussion and celebration of their new book. Joining from London, Toronto, and Washington, D.C., the roundtable discussants will also reflect upon how their own landscape emplacements and research positions informed the making of the book and its emphasis on democratic modes of landscape thinking and practice.

The event, the second in the year-long “Landscape” Event Series organized by Yale Environmental Humanities, is free and open to the public. Event details and a Zoom link will be provided to registrants prior to the roundtable. Please register here if you would like to attend.
