Landscape, Place and Identity


September 2025 | 240 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Landscape, Place and Identity provides a detailed account of our relation to landscape of the last three hundred years. It demonstrates the links between landscape, identity and power and how this link has been articulated though images, texts and practises. In doing so it examines the complexity and power of landscapes, their symbolic, moral and ideological significance, and asks how national, ethnic, sexual and gendered identities are related in various ways to place. Within the last ten years, geography's engagement with landscape has been rethought through perspectives from cultural and media studies, the social sciences, and the arts and humanities. Illustrated throughout, Landscape, Place and Identity offers a detailed primer on these perspectives - with examples from fine art, popular art, literature, film and the built environment. Examining 'high' and 'low' forms of representation - the analysis is a comprehensive overview of historical and contemporary themes.
