New Event and Call for Paper - Conference on Energy Landscapes: Perception, Planning, Participation and Power

The Landscape Research Group organises a European conference on Energy Landscapes: Perception, Planning, Participation and Power. The conference will take place on September 16-18, 2015, in Dresden, Germany.


Key questions to be discussed are:

  • Perception – How is the character, perception, assessment and social construction of landscapes influenced by present and past uses of energy?
  • Planning – Which types of landscape-related planning and governance regimes exist and how are they linked to landscape planning, spatial planning and energy policy?
  • Participation – In the face of energy transitions, to what extent are landscape policies inclusive and participatory? Which actors are involved and who is constituted as an actor in this regard?
  • Power – Which power relations shape the interplay of energies and landscapes? How can the workings of power be conceptualised and critically reflected?

Please note: Contributions which take up issues of perception, planning, participation or power in relation to other landscape transformations, but without explicitly referring to energy, will also be welcome.
