There has been a remarkable resurgence in the past decade of intellectual interplay between geography and the humanities in both academic and public circles. The metaphors and concepts of geography now permeate literature, philosophy, the arts, and other humanities. Terminology a...nd concepts such as space, place, landscape, mapping and geography are becoming pervasive as conceptual frameworks and core metaphors in recent publications by humanities scholars and well-known writers. Envisioning Landscapes, Making Worlds contains over 25 contributions from leading scholars including David Lowenthal, Yi-Fu Tuan, Derek Gregory. This book is divided into four sections to offer a comprehensive examination of the depth and complexity of human meaning invested in maps, attached to landscapes, and embedded in the spaces and places of modern life. This volume engages digital and participatory geographies, reflections on space and place in literature and the visual arts, geography's interactions with philosophy and history, and scientific exploration. The clashing and blending of cultures caused by globalization and the new technologies that profoundly alter human environmental experience suggest new geographical narratives and representations that are explored here by a multidisciplinary group of authors. This engaging book provides a broad overview of the recent developments of this interdisciplinary arena and develops and understanding of the recent explosive expansion of creative interactions between geography and the humanities. It is essential reading for students and scholars seeking to understand the new synergies and interconnectedness of geography and the humanities.
