Content

Cultural landscapes is a key framework for heritage assessment and management in Australia, the Asia-Pacific region and in international heritage systems. This unit is based on the understanding and application of ‘cultural landscape approaches’ to a broad range of contexts. Development and critical evaluation of practical approaches is complemented by consideration of landscape theories, Indigenous and non-western perspectives.

The unit includes case studies of urban, industrial and rural landscapes, challenging the duality of nature/culture and tangible/intangible in heritage practices.
