Populated Landscapes

Society demographics, and territory

If the landscape is a territory defined by the population over a very long time, it is fundamental to investigate population mutations, demographic processes and their effects – including population loss and subsequent decreased productive activity (food, biomass management, etc.) – and the social critical mass needed to counter extractivist processes. Deagrarianization raises questions about who assumes community leadership in the face of land use pressures or dispossession. ‘Rural renaissance’ movements are the reference in this area.
