SIXTH ANNUAL LANDSCAPE, SPACE, AND PLACE GRADUATE STUDENT CONFERENCE
March 22-24, 2012
Indiana University
Bloomington, IN
http://iuconference.com/landscape2012/about.asp

Indiana University’s Department of Geography and Landscape Studies
Program is hosting its sixth annual Landscape, Space and Place Graduate
Student Conference. Graduate students from all disciplines and stages
of research are invited to participate by presenting their
landscape-related work. In addition to paper sessions, there will be a
landscape architecture poster/model session. We welcome all levels of
graduate study and strive to create a dynamic, interactive atmosphere
in which to foster discussion and academic growth.
Landscape studies is multidisciplinary, and landscape’s far-reaching
academic connections give the field its strength. The goal of the LSP
Conference is to bring together graduate students from various
disciplinary backgrounds in order to find common ground. We also hope
to foster a more cohesive and dynamic framework upon which to build the
future of the field.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Landscape ecology
Landscape architecture
Cultural landscape
Symbolic landscape
Sense of place
Historical landscape
Landscape and the arts
Landscape-related pedagogy
Landscape methodology

Paper session presentations will be limited to 15 minutes, plus 5
minutes for questions. Poster session presenters will also be asked to
give a very brief (approx. 5-minute) introduction to their projects to
begin the exhibit.

Abstracts of no more than 250 words are due by January 27, 2012 and can
be submitted via the website:
