MODSCAPES Conference 2018: Modernism, Modernisation and the Rural Landscape



Posted: 5 December, 2017

MODSCAPES is proud to announce its mid-term event, an international conference dedicated to its research topic: Modernist reinventions of the rural landscape.

The Conference will take place in Tartu, second largest city of Estonia, and home to the Estonian University of Life Sciences, partner in MODSCAPES and organizer of the conference, from 10 to 13 June 2018.

This conference aims at:

  • attracting other scholars, practitioners, decision-makers and citizens concerned with modern rural landscapes
  • gaining insight in case-studies and approaches not examined within the project,
  • disseminating the intermediary outcomes of the project,
  • consolidating MODSCAPES’ international network.

The conference is preceded by an international call for papers, and will comprise keynote lectures, presentation sessions, and social events.
All accepted papers will be published in online proceedings, possibly to be made available at the conference itself.

The conference organizers are taking provisions to propose a selection of the best conference papers (including papers by non-MODSCAPES scholars) to be improved and published in edited journal issues.

The Conference venues are the Assembly Hall at the Eesti Maaülikool (Estonian University of Life Sciences), and the freshly completed Eesti Rahva Muuseum (Estonian National Museum), a gem of contemporary architecture and landscape architecture.
