9780415589789: Envisioning Landscapes, Making Worlds: Geography and the Humanities

The past decade has witnessed a remarkable resurgence in the intellectual interplay between geography and the humanities in both academic and public circles. The metaphors and concepts of geography now permeate literature, philosophy and the arts. Concepts such as space, place, landscape, mapping and territory have become pervasive as conceptual frameworks and core metaphors in recent publications by humanities scholars and well-known writers.

Envisioning Landscapes, Making Worlds contains over twenty-five contributions from leading scholars who have engaged this vital intellectual project from various perspectives, both inside and outside of the field of geography. The book is divided into four sections representing different modes of examining the depth and complexity of human meaning invested in maps, attached to landscapes, and embedded in the spaces and places of modern life. The topics covered range widely and include interpretations of space, place, and landscape in literature and the visual arts, philosophical reflections on geographical knowledge, cultural imagination in scientific exploration and travel accounts, and expanded geographical understanding through digital and participatory methodologies. The clashing and blending of cultures caused by globalization and the new technologies that profoundly alter human environmental experience suggest new geographical narratives and representations that are explored here by a multidisciplinary group of authors.

This book is essential reading for students, scholars, and interested general readers seeking to understand the new synergies and creative interplay emerging from this broad intellectual engagement with meaning and geographic experience.

Review:

"This book provides powerful evidence of geography’s intellectual and moral affiliations with the humanities. It boasts an impressive cast of contributors, with elegant and compelling essays that show why creativity, imagination and reflection matter to geographers, and why the insights of geography matter to the humanities as never before." Professor Felix Driver, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK.

"This book strikes a chord in geography by vigorously promoting the significance of the powers of spatial and visual representation in evoking landscapes and places. For the humanities, it elegantly maps the variety of ways in which geographical concepts are helping respond to the so-called crisis of representation by grounding texts, performances, and visual art in landscapes and places." Professor John Agnew, UCLA, USA.

"Envisioning Landscapes, Making Worlds: Geography and the Humanities is a remarkable and timely edited volume."Journal of Regional Science
