Conference: “Space/Site/Landscape”

John F. Kennedy-Institute for North American Studies, Freie Universität Berlin 

This conference brings together historians of art, culture, and science for an intensive one-day discussion about the slippery term “landscape,” while considering issues of site-specificity, biology and ecology, cultural geography, consumerism, the sublime and the picturesque, and nationalism and globalism. Concepts of space, site, and landscape are examined and re-imagined through case studies and broader methodological papers. This event is supported by the Terra Foundation for American Art and the Freie Universität Berlin.
