Landscapes and memory are inextricably connected, often with great emotional resonance. Conflict, from ancient times to the present, is written on the land. Although a palimpsest, sometimes what remains on the land is, in today's parlance, an "alternative fact." This presentation examines the phenomena of conflict, landscape, and memory.

  • Understand how landscapes serve to remediate, reinforce, or alter histories.
  • Appreciate the narrative aspect of landscape, it's potential to support or deny culturally-significant sites.
  • Become familiar with ancient and modern landscapes representing narratives of conflict.
  • Appreciate how landscape is an overview of political and culturally-symbolic landscape identifiers.
