The second edition of the international conference 'Broadening Horizons - Élargir les Horizons' aims once more to bring together researchers in the field of physical landscape studies of the Mediterranean and the Near East.
The main topics addressed this year are: 1) the exploitation of the natural environment and subsistence strategy; 2)Landscape dynamics; 3) Landscape reconstruction based on archaeological, historical and/or environmental records; 4) Settlement patterns and networks (irrigation, trade, etc.) and 5) New tools, new methods.
With multidisciplinarty as its primary concern, the conference aims to attract presentations from a wide variety of disciplines and research-methods. For this reason, it specifically invites historical geographers and archaeo-environmentalists - somewhat underrepresented at the first edition - to actively take part, in order to expand the gaze of what is now often perceived as a primarily geo-archaeological field.
