This collection traces changing conceptions of the landscape from the Enlightenment to the present by looking at routes and roads: how movement has been facilitated, imagined and represented, and how such movement in turn has conditioned our understanding of the landscape. At a time when ideas of mobility and motion and the study of landscape are central to many disciplines, this collection focuses on the often over-looked overlaps between them.
