Thematic Issue: Space, Place, and Meaning (The Anthropology of Landscape)

This issue considers the complex ways in which humans both shape and are shaped by the environment in which they dwell. These papers collectively ask how people imbue landscapes with cultural meaning, how people create places out of space, and how social developments (past and present) are impacted by human engagement with natural surroundings and culturally constructed landscapes. These papers examine humans’ social relationships with their surroundings from a variety of times and areas in the world.
