The historiography of landscape design and management: why is the profession so disengaged? International Conference, University of Sheffield, 20-21 sept
Over the past two centuries the profession of landscape architecture has evolved from its original meaning of those designing the buildings for parks and gardens to that of being involved in a much wider range of environmental issues. The practices of landscape design and management are of course much older, but despite this rich heritage landscape architects have been reluctant to engage with the full history of their profession, which has mainly been written by others.
The aim of this conference is to encourage a debate about the discipline, scrutinising how it tells its own history, how history is used within the profession and how others see this.
