Landscapes of Change

Both stories and maps are ways of finding patterns and organizing information. They locate us in time and space and in relation to one another. Members of Landscapes of Change are using geography and creative writing – scientific and creative inquiry – to encounter the environment today, discover its past, and imagine its future in light of climate change.

We are asking: How do our landscapes shape us and how do we shape them? How can the endeavors of science and art inform our understanding of the changing planet—what can they tell us about its past, and how we use them to shape its future?
