Being LoST in rural landscapes holds a special place in my heart and in the ways I experience landscapes. The understanding of ‘rural’ has changed over the years – from something that ‘isn’t urban’ to now something that provides multiple meanings to people and has multiple components of economic activities. Our understandings shift to seeing rural landscapes as parts of broader socio-economic systems and processes.
Still, there are differences is scale, in facilities and in services. LoST in rural landscapes provide opportunities to see the ways activities have sculptured rural landscapes and the ways communities live in them.
