Message from Robert Melnick, FASLA

I am guest editing an issue on "Landscape and Climate Change" for the preservation journal Change Over Time (UPenn Press) and am seeking submittals.

The issue will address the intersection of landscape preservation and natural systems, especially as it pertains to sustainability and climate change, and will explore many facets of the impacts of climate change on significant cultural landscapes. We look for a range of topics that include case studies, theoretical and philosophical examinations of this topic, the position of cultural landscapes in the larger historic preservation discourse on climate change, and applicable lessons from other disciplines. The goal is to provide a basis from which our responses to known and unknown impacts of climate on cultural landscapes can be advanced.

Call for submittals:  http://cotjournal.com/call-for-papers/  [Note: Please disregard the submittal deadline.]
