This course introduces the concept of ‘reading the landscape’ and the analysis of natural and cultural processes that shape landscapes and cultural identities, with a particular focus on Australian and Asian landscapes. Specific attention is paid to notions of place and place-identity, including the meanings people attach to particular places, how cultural practices are related to economic, political and social power, and how these are represented through the formation of our global imaginations. Within this framework conceptual issues related to population change, including migration, identity, and marginalisation, are also explored.
