Certain landscapes begin to dissolve economic, political, social, and cultural constructs to foster diversity on common ground. This course will trace the development of these socialized landscapes, specifically in Europe and North America in the last two centuries, as places of reform, respite, and refuge. Focusing on a series of case studies, we will characterize what makes a place a socialized landscape, identify how it improves its community, and consider how a local space might be transformed into a socialized landscape. Prerequisite: LSS 100 or 105 or permission of the instructor. Enrollment limited to 20.
