Landscape and Agency explores how landscape, as an idea, a visual medium and a design practice, is organized, appropriated and framed in the transformation of places, from the local to the global. It highlights how the development of the idea of agency in landscape theory and practice can fundamentally change our engagement with future landscapes. Including a wide range of international contributions, each illustrated chapter investigates the many ways in which the relationship between the ideas and practices of landscape, and social and subjective formations and material processes, are invested with agency. They critically examine the role of landscape in processes of contemporary urban development, environmental debate and political agendas and explore how these relations can be analysed and rethought through a dialogue between theory and practice.

The Routledge Research Companion to Landscape Architecture considers landscape architecture’s increasingly important cultural, aesthetic, and ecological role. The volume reflects topical concerns in theoretical, historical, philosophical, and practice-related research in landscape architecture – research that reflects our relationship with what has traditionally been called ‘nature’. It does so at a time when questions about the use of global resources and understanding the links between human and non-human worlds are more crucial than ever. The twenty-five chapters of this edited collection bring together significant positions in current landscape architecture research under five broad themes – History, Sites and Heritage, City and Nature, Ethics and Sustainability, Knowledge and Practice – supplemented with a discussion of landscape architecture education. Prominent as well as up-and-coming contributors from landscape architecture and adjacent fields including Tom Avermaete, Peter Carl, Gareth Doherty, Ottmar Ette, Matthew Gandy, Christophe Girot, Anne Whiston Spirn, Ian H. Thompson and Jane Wolff seek to widen, fuel, and frame critical discussion in this growing area. A significant contribution to landscape architecture research, this book will be beneficial not only to students and academics in landscape architecture, but also to scholars in related fields such as history, architecture, and social studies.

Since the turn of the millennium, there has been a burgeoning interest in, and literature of, both landscape studies and food studies. Landscape describes places as relationships and processes. Landscapes create people’s identities and guide their actions and their preferences, while at the same time are shaped by the actions and forces of people. Food, as currency, medium, and sustenance, is a fundamental part of those landscape relationships. This volume brings together over fifty contributors from around the world in forty profoundly interdisciplinary chapters. Chapter authors represent an astonishing range of disciplines, from agronomy, anthropology, archaeology, conservation, countryside management, cultural studies, ecology, ethics, geography, heritage studies, landscape architecture, landscape management and planning, literature, urban design and architecture. Both food studies and landscape studies defy comprehension from the perspective of a single discipline, and thus such a range is both necessary and enriching. The Routledge Handbook of Landscape and Food is intended as a first port of call for scholars and researchers seeking to undertake new work at the many intersections of landscape and food. Each chapter provides an authoritative overview, a broad range of pertinent readings and references, and seeks to identify areas where new research is needed—though these may also be identified in the many fertile areas in which subjects and chapters overlap within the book.

This stimulating book explores theories, conceptual frameworks, and cultural approaches with the purpose of uncovering a cross-cultural understanding of landscape democracy, a concept at the intersection of landscape, democracy and spatial justice. The authors of Defining Landscape Democracy address a number of questions that are critical to the contemporary discourse on the right to landscape: Why is democracy relevant to landscape? How do we democratise landscape? How might we achieve landscape and spatial justice?

Human geographers have been at the forefront of research that examines the relationships between space, culture and society. This volume contains twenty-one essays, published over the past thirty years, that are iconic instances of this investigative field. With a focus on four broad themes - landscape, identity, colonialism, nature - these essays represent some of the best and most innovative interventions that geographers have made on these topics. From the visual to the corporeal, from rural Ceylon to urban America and from the sixteenth century to the twenty-first, this volume brings together a set of theoretically sophisticated and empirically grounded works.

Um die Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts treffen sich in Sydney die Teilnehmer einer Expedition, die im Auftrag einiger wohlhabender Bürger der Kolonie das unbekannte Innere des australischen Kontinents erforschen soll. Ihr Leiter ist Johann Ulrich Voß, ein deutscher Wissenschaftler. In der betriebsamen Atmosphäre der aufblühenden Hauptstadt von Neu-Südwales mit ihren Kaufleuten und Offizieren, den verwöhnten und schönen Frauen einer reichen, selbstzufriedenen Gesellschaft lernt der spröde, aber von unbändigem Willen besessene Voß Laura Trevelyan, eine junge Waise, kennen. Obwohl es nur zu einer flüchtigen Begegnung kommt und Voß bald darauf mit seiner Expedition die Stadt verläßt, soll eine seltsam tiefe Leidenschaft ihrer beider Schicksal eng verketten.Die Expedition bringt unvorstellbare Anstrengungen und Entbehrungen. Die physischen Belastungen, denen die Männer in einer mächtigen, dem Menschen feindlichen Natur unterworfen sind, die Zerwürfnisse unter ihnen, die Überfälle der Ureinwohner und schließlich der tragische Ausgang des Unternehmens sind die äußeren Geschehnisse, die Patrick White in einer ironisch-realistischen, an kühnen Bildern und eigenwilligen Metaphern reichen Sprache schildert.Gleichsam auf einer zweiten Bühne spielen sich die Vorgänge in Sydney ab, wo Laura die wahre Wirklichkeit ihres Lebens in jenen Visionen erlebt, in denen sie Voß auf seinem Schicksalsweg begleitet und über Raum und Zeit hinweg an seinem vermessenen Streben, an seiner Niederlage und inneren Wandlung leidenschaftlichen Anteil nimmt. So wird in den farbigen Kulissen des kolonialen Lebens eine Welt hintergründiger Beziehungen und magischer Verstrickungen sichtbar, in der sich die zwiespältige Persönlichkeit des deutschen Forschers Voß zu legendärer Größe entfaltet.
