CALL FOR PAPERS: ‘CULTURAL LANDSCAPES OF ENERGY’

CALL FOR PAPERS: ‘CULTURAL LANDSCAPES OF ENERGY’

The production of energy has had a large impact on landscapes in Europe during the twentieth and the twenty-first century. The extraction of natural resources, such as coal mining and oil drilling, or the construction of large-scale infrastructure, such as dams, power plants and wind farms, have shaped what we refer to as ‘cultural landscapes of energy’. This economic utilisation of landscapes affected local societies by introducing new industrial work cultures, but it also involved the destruction of villages and small towns, due to excavation and flooding, and the resettlement of their inhabitants.
