“Soulscapes: in search of genius loci” intends to provoke a scientific reflection on how landscape reveals the way people relate to their physical and spiritual environment (Bockemuehl, 1992, 13). Intrigued by the assumption that “every place should have a spirit” (Day, 1990, 107), we invite interested researchers and students to enter into dialogue about the homogenising of the landscape due to which gradually the genii loci are lost (Antrop, 2000, 32).
The landscape is tangible out there and simultaneously a mental reality (Antrop & Van Eetvelde, 2017, 392). Since the soul of a place might be characterised as “the intangible feeling – made up of so many things” (Day,1990), we welcome an exchange of thoughts about these ‘things’. This includes the sacrality of landscapes (Verschuuren & Furuta, 2016; Day, 2012).
The participants are also invited to bring new thoughts and approaches to issues related with cultural landscape services, a topic of relevant research currently in Landscape Ecology.
The conference is structured in four panels:

1. Observing Landscape – towards a holistic Landscape Ecology Education
2. Healing and therapeutic landscapes – opportunities for new multifunctionality
3. Landscapes as places of harmony – how to safeguard landscape quality
On the 19th June 2018, a Field Atelier, following a Goethean approach, will take place at the Interpretation Centre for Landscape/Charneca Observatory, Casal do Gavião do Meio, Ribatejo:
