Om dette emnet

The course provides insight into the theoretical and historical perspectives on the major challenges afflicting the planet and their repercussions on the landscapes in a globalized world. Fundamental issues such as global urbanization, migration, climate change, loss of biodiversity will be addressed. Particular importance will be attached to how extensive networks of economic, cultural, social, and political interconnections and processes transform landscapes at different scales. GLA303 is organized into three modules.

Each module consists of

Lectures: by the teachers of the course and by invited guests.

Seminars/workshops: students lead discussions and activities on the Miro board

Self-study: reading of papers and analysis of contemporary landscape design projects, resulting in written and oral assignments
