[06-10-2020] The Spatial Turn: Heritage as Landscape

CLUE+ and HERILAND cordially invite you to this online webinar

10/06/2020 | 11:00 AM

Date: Tuesday 6 October 2020
Time: 11:15

Speaker: Andrew Butler (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences)


Dramatic landscape change affects how individuals and communities relate to their surroundings. Using the example of a forest fire in Sweden I will present how a theoretical model for ‘Landscape Identity’ was developed to address lost connections to landscape. I will discuss how the ‘Landscape Identity model’ informed a multi-method and interdisciplinary driven study, creating qualitative, quantitative and map based data. Finally, I will then show how from the data attained we were able to reveal a positive correlation between connection to place before the fire and perceived well-being after the fire.

This webinar is organized by the University of Newcastle, partner in the Heriland project.
