Politiskt landskap

Senast ändrad: 15 mars 2019

Politiken är central för hur landskapen förstås, representeras och styrs men har fått en begränsad uppmärksamhet hittills i landskapsforskning. Denna projektet utvecklar nordisk akademisk kapacitet inom landskapspolitiken och identifierar en agenda för framtida forskning om detta ämne.

Politics is central to the way in which landscapes are understood, represented and governed. However, this topic has received remarkably limited attention to-date in landscape research. This project develops Nordic academic capacity in landscape politics and identifies an agenda for future research on this topic. This is achieved through the organisation of two workshops (in Sweden and Denmark) and a number of related activities. The workshops will draw on expertise from disciplines that have a long tradition of substantive engagement with theories of, and analytical perspectives on, politics and power. C ase studies will also be a central part of the workshops. We will visit the site of Sweden’s largest forest fire in modern history and explore how connections between human and landscape identities have altered. For the workshop in Denmark, we will focus on questions of inclusion and exclusion (of people, values, viewpoints, etc.) in the urban landscape of C openhagen. The outcomes of the project will be disseminated via a dedicated web-site, the organisation of a conference session, through the development of a PhD course, and the publication of one journal and one popular science article. C oordinated research applications will be submitted to national funding agencies in Nordic countries towards the end of the project in order to pursue the research agenda we develop.
