This two-day SUNY ‘Conversation’ on Landscape Across the Disciplines provides a platform for inter- and transdisciplinary research, criticism, debate, and exchange around the subject of landscape as it spans the arts, humanities, and sciences (natural, social, and cognitive). Presentations will include scientists, artists, humanities scholars, activists and designers whose work intersects with this topic in new and challenging ways.
