To my experience - and that is not much - in landscape studies an emphasis on

collective discussion about ...

But is it possible, one might ask, to see in these 'energies' some attempt to
grapple with the social landscape of postmodernity? If so does artistic
postmodernism comment upon the new economies of labour, leisure, and
consumption? Does it have anything to say about a social realm characterized in
terms of the deregulation of financial markets and the consequent mobility of
capital, the inexorable growth of privatization, the internationalization of the
division of labour, the introduction ...

legitimate than ...

And on another display board I have pictures of landscape. And the idea of this is
to make links between different forms of landscape and artists we are studying.
We look at concepts like 'idealised landscape' and whenever I am teaching I
always try to get back to a point where the students can enter and understand the
