About This Space
Culturallandscapes.ca is a website dedicated to understanding the relationship between culture and nature through the use of new digital media. The website was initiated in 2008 by the Cultural Landscape Laboratory at the Natural Resources Institute, University of Manitoba.
In the literature and on the web, cultural landscapes often get represented as heritage by experts rather than living landscapes with ongoing interactions between humans and their environment. The purpose of this website is to provide a place in which diverse voices can provide a contemporary expression of cultural landscapes through written, visual and oral texts.
If you would like to be part of this initiative we invite you to with your ideas for exploring cultural landscapes through new digital media. In an effort to maintain authenticity and quality of the site contributors and contributions are reviewed by an editorial board. If you would simply like to explore cultural landscapes and converse with others about this topic you are welcome to become a registered user which will allow you to post comments and join in on-going discussion forums.
