The Routledge Handbook of Landscape and Food has been shortlisted for the Landscape Institute (LI) Awards 2019 within the communications and presentation category.
The volume, which is edited by Tim Waterman and Joshua Zeunert, features over fifty contributors from around the world in forty interdisciplinary chapters. Writtle University College lecturers Dr Saruhan Mosler and Professor Peter R Hobson's article on Relationships between Food and Land Use In Prehistoric British and European Societies appears within chapter one. Dr Mosler said: "The Routledge Handbook is an impressively wide-ranging introduction to landscape and food studies. I was delighted to learn that the Landscape Institute acknowledged its impact by placing it on the 2019 shortlist."
Professor Hobson said: "The Routledge Handbook of Landscape and Food is an important contribution to our understanding of the evolution of the European landscape and encourages us to appreciate the intimate relationship between food culture and landscape character in this region of the world."
The Institute received over 180 award entries in 2019, so reaching the finals is an impressive achievement. The winners will be announced on 28 November 2019 at the Troxy, a Grade II-listed Art Deco music and events venue close to the heart of London. 2019 marks a double celebration, as it is the Landscape Institute's 90th anniversary. Attendees include Natural England Chief Executive Marian Spain, Rainer Stange, President of the Norwegian Landscape Architects Association, and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.
