About the Course

This course covers human - environment interactions in both short and long term perspectives and at global as well as local scales. The course is divided into two sections. The first module introduces concepts relevant to both sustainability and landscapes. The departure is taken from a human geographical landscape perspective, but related concepts and approaches, like political ecology and resilience theory are also discussed. Sustainability research and management is often dominated by work in the natural sciences. We pay particular attention in this course to the contributions that are emerging from social and cultural research. The section includes seminars, where analytical skills and oral communication will be strengthened. For the second module, the students will conduct their own research assignments and present their findings both orally and in a written report.
