Los Angeles (Bucks)

Congratulations to Lauren Piko for her PhD completion seminar today — Milton Keynes, Decline & the English landscape. Lauren’s project traces representations of the new town in British media, politics and popular culture from 1967-1992. Historicising Milton Keynes’ reception and meanings helps render explicit the ‘common sense’ which continues to underpin judgements about ideal British landscapes, the role and value of heritage, and how these shape exclusive narratives of national identity.
