Students follow the development of the concept of “landscape” as it appears in narrative references and various art works. Both the “built” environment and nature have been interpreted and recorded in many different ways including cartography, the figure in the environment, earthworks and the imagined landscape. Emphasis is on the political and social role of these images in colonialism, imperialism and the development of a national identity. Cultural attitudes towards the environment are also discussed.
Notes: This course is part of a menu of required 3rd year DRPT Studio/Seminar courses. Priority in registration is given to Drawing & Painting Majors.
