Critical Commentary

This article draws out the "humanistic geography" turn of the 1960s embodied by the journal Landscape started in 1951. As spatial quantitative sciences were changing how relations between place and space were being mapped, a new wave of cultural and historical geographers began to think about ways of linking together history, art, literature and ethnography to think about the place of the human on earth (and possibly beyond). This article makes the argument that the fertile intellectual space of this magazine was where the concept of "geohumanities" was cultivated in a transdisciplinary context.
