2017: Call for Papers

11th Annual Landscape, Space, and Place Conference
Indiana University – Bloomington, Indiana
March 2-4 2017

Landscape Studies is multidisciplinary, and has far-reaching academic connections and a diverse array of approaches that give the field its strength. The goal of the Landscape, Space and Place (LSP) Conference is to bring together scholars across various disciplinary backgrounds and from different stages of their careers to exchange ideas and consider novel intellectual perspectives. We also hope to encourage a more integrative framework upon which to build the future of the field.

Along with paper presentations, past conferences have included landscape architecture panels, artistic installations, hands-on demonstrations, and film screenings. Such creative project submissions are also welcome and can be accommodated. Please email the coordinators with special proposals. We are open to many interpretations of Landscape, Space, and Place. Some previous papers and sessions have dealt with the following approaches:

*Geographies of film culture and exhibition
*Digital landscapes, mapping, and geo-caching
*Global conflict, borders, and nationalism
*Queer spaces, gendered places, and visual culture
*Whiteness and racialized landscapes
*Archaeology and landscape history
*Visual culture and media studies
*Tourism, postcoloniality, and boundary crossing
*Environmental landscapes and politics
*Migration, geographies of everyday life
*Animal and posthuman geographies
*Architecture and theories of design
*Photography and documentary studies
*Soundscapes, sound studies, and sonar

Potential questions to address include but are not limited to: How do landscapes shape dynamics of power and how do these power structures in turn shape landscapes? *What are the relationships between spaces and cultural and artistic practices? *How can places influence conceptualizations of citizenship and political involvement? *What are some of the contemporary or historical ways of representing and experiencing space? *What are some of the ways of circulating and reproducing notions of place?

Past Keynote Speakers:
Kenneth Foote, University of Connecticut – Department of Geography
Janet Walker, University of California–Santa Barbara – Film and Media Studies
Yi-Fu Tuan, University of Wisconsin–Madison – Emeritus professor of Geography

Information and Guidelines for Submission:

The LSP conference will feature workshop panels of 3-4 people presenting papers related to a general theme.
