Kulturgeografer anordnar The Permanent European Conference on the Study of the Rural Landscape (PECSRL) 8-12 September 2014
The Permanent European Conference on the Study of the Rural Landscape (PECSRL) is an international network of landscape researchers and a platform for new initiatives, meetings and publications with focus on the past, present and future of European landscapes, relating to landscape research, landscape policy and landscape management. The network meets every two years in different European countries for lectures, discussions, working groups and landscape excursions.
The leading topic for the 26th conference is: "Unraveling the Logics of Landscape". Despite conceptual oscillations through times, the concept of landscape remains highly subjective, whereupon unraveling its 'logics' opens up to a plurality of interpretations. Accordingly, by focusing on the interconnections present in the non-haphazard production of landscape, the conference will elaborate on how the rural landscape is valued, monitored, changed, harbored, used and misused, be it through actions, representations or metaphors. We hope to see you in Sweden to take part and share convictions, doubts and ideas on how to best unravel the complex logics of landscape.
