What would it mean to fully embrace the concept of landscape as a milieu of situated, everyday practices, encompassing the mutually constitutive relations between people and place? And how can landscape studies, a field with roots in Western cartographic and imperial traditions, establish scholarly and activist frameworks that facilitate inclusivity, belonging, and justice? The co-editors of the recently published edited volume Landscape Citizenships (Routledge, 2021) will join Thaïsa Way, Director of Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks, to consider these and other questions in a roundtable discussion of their new book. The discussants will also reflect upon how their own landscape emplacements and research positions informed the making of the book and its emphasis on democratic modes of landscape thinking and practice.
