The conference seeks to “critically explore the ways in which the idea of sacred landscapes is entangled with diverse communities, with particular attention to mountain landscapes. The conference will feature interdisciplinary dialogue about what kinds of meanings shape, and are shaped by, the effects of climate change, mass extinction, human population growth and ecological degradation of mountains, forests, rivers, and other sacred landscapes.”
Calls for proposals for the conference are invited until 10 October 2016.
How about someone submit a proposal on the role of CSVPA for mountain landscapes? How many sacred mountain landscapes are protected? What might be opportunities and challenges for more sacred landscapes to achieve protected area status?
Note: for any queries, please contact the organisers directly, not the CSVPA website.
