Seminar at UiA May 12
The contestation of what we know and take as place and landscape is deep, not least from non-representational, non-human, and post-human theories. It seems us humans are now trying to domesticate the world to an unsure climate and ecological future, creating fear and frustration as well as radical change of landscapes and cities.
This seminar touches on three in-real-world intertwined problematics:
– Place and landscape as a montage; an assemblage of things, meanings,
– The milieu as place of action and planning.
– Governing, planning and things on the move.
