Geographers have been engaging with landscape since the beginning of the modern discipline of geography. A series of concurrent turns have taken place in human geography in recent years that are influencing the ways in which geographers approach landscape. We take forward new material, decolonial, and creative shifts in the discipline to reimagine landscape. Landscape is a geographical concept that has historically excluded a range of other voices and perspectives. To build a radically inclusive agenda for landscape research in geography, we put forward a generative conceptualisation of landscape that brings together (i) materiality; (ii) decoloniality; and (iii) creativity.
