Hydro-citizenship: Tracing how citizens and communities live with each other and their environment in relation to wat

Maggie Roe

November 30 16:30, Van Langen Auditorium, Rolighedsvej 23

Join us for this lecture on connecting communities and nature through water. Drawing on cases from a range of UK neighbourhoods where arts and humanities research methods have been used, this lecture will review our understanding of communities, how they function, and how water serves both as an impetus for social cohesion and conflict in our search for community and environmental resilience.


Maggie Roe joined Newcastle University in 1994 following work in practice within the UK and a year carrying out research at the Graduate School of Design, Harvard University. She has experience on a wide range of multi-disciplinary research and consultancy landscape projects which involve building consensus between the public, voluntary and statutory organisations. Her main research interests lie in the field of large scale landscape planning and design; landscape ecology; sustainable landscapes; coastal landscape planning, human perception of, experience and relationship with the landscape, participatory landscape planning, cultural landscapes and landscape change. She is Consulting Editor of the international peer reviewed journal Landscape Research and has helped to focus attention within the journal onto cultural landscape issues. Her most recent book, New Cultural Landscapes (2014), explores issues of heritage, conservation, human-nature relationships in the landscape and the creation of meaning in future landscapes.
