Changes in landscapes inevitably impact on local communities.

Publication is a British Academy policy report and is available to read online at the URL above.

Through the support of the British Academy’s Rising Star Engagement Award, over the course of 2015 and 2016 Samantha Walton hosted a series of events around Bristol and Bath that aimed to foster critical discussion and performative evaluation of landscapes and places under processes of change. This contribution to the British Academy's policy report reflects on the aims and successes of the series, and makes a case for policy that is attentive to theories of place derived from arts and humanities research approaches.
