AbstractWriting about the medieval landscape and environment has a rich and long tradition and is an area in which many of the disciplines that comprise medieval studies have made significant contributions. Scholars working on ideas of the landscape, concepts of space, and place as well as in the developing field of environmental humanities have added to our theoretical framework for understanding people's relationships with the environment in the past. This session focuses on ideas of local and regional memory and and how landscapes of the past are shaped and mapped in the present.
