Workshop on Characterising Historic Landscapes

Workshop on Characterising Historic Landscapes: Interdisciplinary Perspectives 


1 - 4 March 2016, Izmir, Turkey 


Under the British Council’s Researcher Links scheme sponsored by the Newton Fund, the British Council, Ege University and Newcastle University will be holding a workshop on the above theme in Izmir, Turkey on 1-4 March 2016. The workshop is being coordinated by Professor Engin Nurlu and Professor Sam Turner, and will have contributions from other leading reserachers. 

The Workshop:

As defined in the European Landscape Convention (2000), the concept of ‘landscape’ provides a way to bring cultural and natural heritage together in mutually-supportive ways. Landscape offers a global frame to address social and environmental challenges and to exploit the social, economic and environmental values of different types of heritage for social benefit. Landscape perspectives can be local and universal, personal and collective; they embrace both tangible and intangible heritage and have strong cross-sectoral connections to areas such as urban planning.

Our Workshop will explore research on emerging landscape characterisation methods that can be used across and between disciplines to address the challenges of environmental and social change through landscape. Leading specialists from Turkey and the UK will work with Early Career Researchers to help them to identify and address challenges facing societies in both countries through landscape.

To Participate:

We are now inviting Early Career Researchers from the UK or Turkey to apply to attend this workshop. All travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the Newton Researcher Links programme. The application form, with more details on the initiative, is attached and should be sent to francesco.carrer(at) before the deadline of 29 January 2016.
