Conference Theme

FINDING CENTER: LANDSCAPE & VALUES


The purpose of the CELA 2012 annual meeting is to re-evaluate notions of what is “central” for higher education, for landscape architecture, and for the direction of contemporary life.  There are interesting implications for CELA in resetting the margins of our field, of our influence, of our interests—as well as resetting our goals at several scales—local, regional, national and global. Whether from a central perspective looking at the horizon, or from a more liminal perspective peering in, we hope this conference will generate a critical and imaginative focus on the broad range of values expressed in our curricula, as well as in our various fields of practice. Come and join the conversation.
