Writing about the medieval landscape and environment has a rich and long tradition and is an area in which many of the disciplines that comprise medieval studies have made significant contributions. Scholars working on ideas of the landscape, concepts of space, and place as well as in the developing field of environmental humanities have added to our theoretical framework for understanding people's relationships with the environment in the past. In this session we hope to explore new insights into looking at borders, both real and conceptual, to gain better insights into landscape studies.
