Online workshop: Investigating human preferences in the landscape through the photographs

Topic: Investigating human preferences in the landscape through the photographs (the case of ponds and their tradition in the landscape)

The workshop will be framed in the study about fishponds concerning their meaning in landscape multifunctionality. First, the concepts of traditions and landscape aesthetics will be introduced. The core of the workshop will be based on the presentation of various methods enabling the use of photographs in terms of identifying people’s preferences for rural landscapes and their specific characteristics. Participants will also be taught about different types of fishponds in landscape contexts and their photographic representations. These issues will be discussed together with the research on the cultural tradition of fishing in the Czech Republic.
