Honghe Hani Rice Terraces—a famous UNESCO world cultural heritage site in southwest China’s Yunnan province. Hani people have cultivated the land into terraced rice paddies for at least 1,300 years, creating a unique manufactured landscape. RCC director Helmuth Trischler and Alumni Fellows Don Worster, Ed Russell, and Hou Shen visited Yunnan prior to the RCC-sponsored conference “Manufacturing Landscapes—Nature and Technology in Environmental History” at the Center for Ecological History at Renmin University, Beijing (28–31 May 2015).
