The University of Manitoba hosted a colloquium from October 26-28, 2018 in which the core team addressed diversity in research, collaborative approaches and potentials in our individual faculties, and how to mobilize landscape-based interdisciplinary research. From the regional or institution level, the discussion will expand to the national level to identify, address and provide further insights into current Canadian landscape research.
We want the graduate students to actively participate in this discussion. We hope to engage students in contemporary methods and questions, preparing them for the following day with the extended group and expert presentations. Conversations will address the reciprocal relationship of knowledge values, and landscapes to ground the importance of our research shaping the future. Knowledge of the way landscapes shape our lives, and the ways knowledge and values influence how we form the landscape, are revealed through conversation.
