Kenneth Olwig

1946 -

Kenneth Robert Olwig (b. 1946) is an American landscape geographer specializing in the study of the Scandinavian landscape. Since 2002, he has served as professor of landscape architecture at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. He is best known for his work on the conceptual understanding of landscape, and for advocating a "substantive" and integrated rather than critical approach to landscape. Olwig's books include Landscape, Nature and the Body Politic (2002) and Nature's Ideological Landscape (1984). Olwig received his bachelor's degree from Shimer College, where he enrolled through the early entrance program, and obtained his Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota, where he studied under the noted geographer Yi-Fu Tuan.
