    Beschrijving

    The 28 th session of the PECSRL biennial international conference – European landscapes and quality of life – will be held at two locations in 2018: Clermont-Ferrand and Mende. This general theme encompasses the interactions between the quality of landscapes, the quality of food and the quality of life - the importance of re enrooting “food to place” as an alternative to globalization and a way for bettering Public Health and quality of life in connection with landscapes.

    It will be hosted by the research group “territoires”, an interdisciplinary unit that gathers geographers, economists, agronomists and social and politic scientists from 5 institutions (Agro Paris Tech, Clermont Auvergne University, INRA, IRSTEA, VetAgro Sup).

    The conference brings together geographers, landscape architects, historians, ethnographers, archaeologists, ecologists, rural planners, landscape managers and other scholars interested in European landscapes. The conference offers a great opportunity to meet colleagues from all parts of Europe, to get informed about various aspects of European landscape research and to initiate new projects. In addition to paper sessions, poster presentations, workshops and plenary sessions, there will be one full day of field trips which will provide the PECSRL participants with a detailed knowledge of some rural landscapes in the Massif central area.
