Special Issue of craft+design enquiry: “Landscape, Place and Identity in Craft and Design” (April 2014)

Website: http://craftdesignenquiry.blogspot.com.au/p/blog-page_13.html
Deadline for submission of abstracts: 30 April 2014

About Landscape, Place and Identity in Craft and Design, Kay writes “… These words posit different relationships to the environment; landscapes encompassed by the gaze or places known through the intimacy of bodily sensation. Both words are culturally inflected. Our understanding of both landscapes and places is shaped by sensory experience as well as by memory and myth, and are thus bound up with complex questions about human identity.
