This book brings together 28 selected papers from two events, the 20th session of the Permanent European Conference for the Study of the Rural Landscape (PECSRL), and a series of workshops, financed by the European Union under the title EURULA. The papers presented in the book focus on aspects of landscape, broadly related to issues of language, representation and power. These are issues that have not been addressed on a pan-European landscape level before. Our aim is to offer a deeper interdisciplinary understanding of historical and contemporary processes in European landscapes with empirical evidence covering much of the continent.
The selection of papers is aimed at academics taking an interest in landscape studies and research as well as public planners.
