The LI is co-sponsoring a seminar session with the Landscape Research Group called ‘Post-industrial landscapes – insights from art, geography and landscape architecture’
The event will take place on the morning of Wednesday 1 September as part of the Royal Geographic Society’s annual conference.
LI vice-president Brodie McAllister will be among those presenting papers. McAllister said: “This is only one part of the whole conference: LI members may also enjoy other sessions. Longer versions of the papers from this session will be published in a special edition of the Landscape Research journal.”
Involvement in the event follows on from discussions between Brodie McAllister, on behalf of the LI, and the Landscape Research Group’s board of trustees, with the aim of exploring areas of overlap and mutual benefit.
McAllister commented: “The LI is mindful of the need to support academics and practitioners in increasing the awareness of research opportunities. Both our profile at conferences and research are vital to our intellectual standing.
“These initiatives will help widen our relevance and appeal, and galvanise our position as a bridge between disciplines.”
