seminar with members of the the Karelian Society about Cultural Karelian Landscapes.

During the seminar, the students discussed with members of the Karelian society the cultural dimension of the landscape by studying the differences and similarities of places and regions that shared before the same nature and cultural background but that took at some point diverging paths… We wanted to approach the landscape as a human construct in which human decisions determine its evolution.

That is why worked in the frontier between Finland and Russia: the cultural evolution of Karelian Landscapes
