Ty’s Reading Question Week 3

Wilson and Groth discuss the additions of polyphony to the study of cultural landscapes. Starting from the Old English pronunciation of the word “landscape”, to the concept of a landscape in 18th C. paintings, through J.B. Jackson’s landscape studies that helped redefine the term, and finally touching on the more current interests of race, class and gender that add to the polyphony of cultural landscapes. It seems that the understanding of a cultural landscape is something that has evolved and continues to evolve over time. If the pattern continues, what issues will be added to the polyphony of cultural landscape studies in the next 50-100 years?
