Vol. 21 No. 1 (2022): Special Issue: Tropical Landscapes and Nature~Culture Entanglements
Special Issue Editors: Anita Lundberg, Hannah Regis, John Agbonifo & Eduardo de la Fuente
Landscapes integrate natural and cultural aspects of an area. They incorporate environmental elements: landforms, waterscapes, climate and weather, flora and fauna. And necessarily involve human perception and inscription which reflect histories of extraction and excavation, of planting and settlement, of design and pollution. Natural elements and their cultural shaping by humans – past, present, and future – means landscapes reflect entanglements of people and place. A landscape’s physicality is entwined with layers of human meaning and value – and tropical landscapes have particular value.
