Landscape and the Ideology of Nature in Exurbia

This book explores the role of the ideology of nature in producing urban and exurban sprawl. It examines the ironies of residential development on the metropolitan fringe, where the search for “nature” brings residents deeper into the world from which they are imagining their escape—of Federal Express, technologically mediated communications, global supply chains, and the anonymity of the global marketplace—and where many of the central features of exurbia—very low-density residential land use, monster homes, and conversion of forested or rural land for housing—contribute to the very problems that the social and environmental aesthetic of exurbia attempts to avoid. The volume shows how this contradiction—to live in the green landscape, and to protect the green landscape from urbanization—gets caught up and represented in the ideology of nature, and how this ideology, in turn, constitutes and is constituted by the landscapes being urbanized.



Geographical Aesthetics

Geographical Aesthetics Author Dr Harriet Hawkins

Bringing together timely commentaries by international, interdisciplinary scholars, Geographical Aesthetics is the first volume to make questions of geographical aesthetics a substantive concern. It reworks the historical relations between geography and aesthetics, and reconsiders how it is we might understand aesthetics. It then reaffirms the value of aesthetics in relation to key intellectual concerns within Geography and explores the geographies of the aesthetic, in particular the spatialities and imaginaries that mark its theorisations. In renewing aesthetics as a site of investigation, but also an analytic object through which we can think about the encounters, the meetings and minglings of the world, what also emerges is powerful reworking of our geographical imaginary of the aesthetic.

There is no escaping landscape: it's everywhere and part of everyone's life. Landscapes have received much less attention in aesthetics than those arts we can choose to ignore, such as painting or music - but they can tell us a lot about the ethical and aesthetic values of the societies that produce them. Drawing on examples from a wide range of landscapes from around the world and throughout history, Susan Herrington considers the ways landscapes can affect our emotions, our imaginations, and our understanding of the passage of time. On Landscapes reveals the design work involved in even the most naturalistic of landscapes, and the ways in which contemporary landscapes are turning the challenges of the industrial past into opportunities for the future. Inviting us to thoughtfully see and experience the landscapes that we encounter in our daily lives, On Landscapes demonstrates that art is all around us.
