Landscapes Both Invite and Defy Definition
Hutchinson, Nick
Geographical Education, v29 p23-32 2016
This article examines various meanings of the term landscape. It advocates a deep engagement with the concept to enable high school students to carry out a range of thought-provoking geographical inquiries. Each aspect of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority's definition of landscape, shown below, is examined by reference to more one-dimensional ideas of landscape such as "the visible features of the surface of the earth" to the more complex ideas expressed in critical geographies.
