AUT21: L Arch 352 – History of Landscape Architecture “(re)Righting Landscapes”

TTh 1:30 – 3:20 PM

The history of landscape is embedded within the land. Even when those narratives are contested, forgotten, or erased, they continue to affect the ways in which we understand, navigate and shape the world we live in today.  This survey history course interrogates landscape sites, systems, and symbols from the Paleolithic to mid-nineteenth century. And critically examines the writing, production, and performance of landscape and its histories thematically and through the diverse lenses of: power and ownership, memory and representation, knowledge and experience, labor and production, materiality and technological innovation, climate disruption and social change, identity and emotion, and race, class and gender.
