11 January 2011 Meeting of the subgroup on Town and Country
  The first meeting of the 'stad&land' workgroup will take place in the Husserl-Archives, room 02.02 of the "Presidents Building (building 115.02)" at the Institute for Philosophy, Kardinaal Mercierplein 2 in Leuven, Belgium. (It is the first building on your left when you enter the Institute of Philosophy from the Mercierplein).


We will discuss the following texts:

  • Christopher Tiley (1994): A Phenomenology of Landscape. Places, Paths and Monuments. (Oxford: Berg Publishers) ;
    Chapter 1: Space, Place, Landscape and Perception: Phenomenological Perspectives, p. 7-34.
  • Tim Ingold (1993). The Temporality of Landscape. World Archaeology, 25 (1993) 2, p.152-174.
  • Steve Hinchliffe, Matthew B. Kearnes, Monica Degen & Sarak Whatmore (2005). Urban Wild Things: a Cosmopolitical Experiment, Environment and Planning D: Society and Space, vol. 23, p 643-658.


Each text will be briefly introduced, to focus attention at the beginning of discussion. these presentations will need not be longer than 5 minutes, and will merekly summarize the main topics of the paper, possibly but not necessarily with some questions to get the discussion started. certainly no in-depth discussion and background for the paper needs to be given. No PowerPoint-presentations are needed, since we won't be able to project these  in the archives anyway.

12.30h lunch

13.30h presentation + discussion Ingold (Introduction by Glenn Deliège)
