      Apologies for cross-posting.

      Call for Papers AAG 2009-Landscape: Heuristic Tool, Cultural Artifact,
      Ecological
      Concept or Political Entity?

      Session Organizers: Michelle Metro-Roland, Indiana University; James
      Hayes, California State University Northridge; Shanon Donnelly,
      University of Akron

      Landscape has a long tradition within the history of geographic
      thought,
      though the definition of what landscape is has differed over time.
      From
      Carl Sauer in the 1920s to Kenneth Olwig today, what constitutes
      landscape has shifted, with varying degrees of significance given to
      the
      natural, cultural and political aspects engendered by the concept. The
      use of the term has also been used to describing a portion of the
      earth’s surface, to refer to representation, as well as to describe
      a
      way of looking at the world. While the importance of landscape as a
      topic of inquiry has waxed and waned, it appears that there is a new
      resurgence of interest. This session seeks to draw together papers
      which
      have in common a focus upon landscape in order to explore the manifest
      ways in which this foundational geographic term is understood and
      employed by contemporary researchers.

      We welcome research from geographers and scholars from other
      disciplines
      who treat landscape in all its myriad manifestations.
