Online book launch: “Environmental Humanities: a Rethinking of Landscape Archaeology?”

The “environment” cannot be regarded as a blank space that landscape meaning is projected onto. Humans reinforce the environmental challenges in the past,  today and in the future. What cultural factors drive human action, what role is played by ethics and how is landscape experienced emotionally?

This new book asks: how are concepts derived from art, literature, and history – and how do they function in such processes of meaning attribution and other cultural processes? This humanities approach is of the utmost importance with issues such as global warming, an escalating loss of biodiversity as well as increasingly toxic environment. In this new book, a new landscape archaeology is presented, inspired by Environmental Humanities that meets these challenges and well across disciplinary boundaries.
