In preparation for a potential outing next class (weather permitting), I'd like us to consider a few different representations of our local landscape, while adding discussions of territories and borders offered by Multiplicity and Delaney to our methods for 'reading the landscape.'
Champaign understood through:
Various municipal policy framework
s (TIF and zoning districts, demographics, etc)
A close reading of the interactions of non-human and human ecologies
We will look at these in class before taking our brief journey, but it would be helpful to check them out briefly before class if possible.
