9th Annual Landscape, Space, and Place Conference
Indiana University - Bloomington, Indiana
February 26-28th 2015
Indiana University's Department of Geography and Landscape Studies Program are hosting their 9th annual Landscape, Space, and Place (LSP) Conference. To reflect the increased focus on spatiality as a vital lens, graduate students and faculty from all disciplines are invited to participate by presenting work that foregrounds issues of landscape, space, and place on a multitude of subjects. In addition to paper sessions, there will also be a landscape architecture poster and model session. Via these various formats, we strive to create a dynamic, interactive atmosphere in which to foster discussion and academic growth.
We invite performances, creative/interactive presentations, etc. Abstracts of approximately 250 words are due January 18, 2015. Please email questions and abstract submissions to IUlandscapeconference@gmail.com.
