Call for papers

The term ‘hospitality’ appears in the manifold contexts with diverse meanings. We speak of a correlation between a guest and a host, a power of guidance and exchange, and a matter of protection and survival. In all these cases, hospitality is no longer a static state, but rather both a generating condition and a driving force fortransformation. Such a state is also on the verge of a dynamic process – a series of continuing interactions of which the consequences are intertwined.

The IFLA APR Congress in Bangkok seeks to reflect upon the institute’s mission by exploring the term ‘hospitality’ in relation to landscape architectural studies and practices.We invites scientists, artists, designers, planners, policy makers and developers to engage in a fluctuating range of discussion and reflection on ‘interactions with land’ in all combined aspects of environment, social, and culture.
