To my experience - and that is not much - in landscape studies an emphasis on
traditional morphological approach concerning pastoral rural landscapes of the
past has prevailed despite the world is intensively urban. Following the
generational change the postmodern representational approach for urban
landscape studies has become increasingly popular among scholars. What
possibilities there are then in the 21st century for comparative approach or
collective discussion about ...

Aspa Gospodini This chapter examines landscape transformations in the post-
industrial city. It attempts to portray, classify and understand the emerging
landscapes in terms of land-use patterns, urban morphology and density. It is
argued that the locational trends of flourishing post-industrial economic activities,
along with the development of new urban governance strategies, tend to
rearrange the landscapes of the postmodern city. The inner city is dominated by
an eclectic clustering ...

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 ...

The first is to abandon any hope of new structures emerging and reconcile
ourselves to constantly surfing over the social landscapes of 'post-modernity'. The
second is to deny that anything has really changed and continue using the
classical leitmotifs of modernity. The third is to bide our time and 'purchase fog
lamps . . . to illuminate more powerfully the immediate vicinity, the details just
before our eyes . . . [applying] intentional and purposeful empiricism' (Esping-
Andersen 2000: 72).

Geographical description has been made surprisingly difficult by the confusions
of postmodernity. Cultures, landscapes, and styles are being mixed up and
redeposited like detritus in a terminal moraine at precisely the same time that

there are no firm grounds for claiming that our account of them is true or more
legitimate than ...
