Landscape and Environment Programme Conference: 18th-21st June 2009, Aberystwyth University: Deadline for proposals 1st December 2008
21 November 2008
Landscape and environment are currently of compelling cultural significance: as fields of scholarly research, sites of artistic endeavour and arenas of public concern. As both imaginative representations and material realities, they are the site of negotiation for the expression of complex ideas and feelings – about beauty, belonging, access to resources, relations with nature, the past and the future, making sense of the world and people's place in it.
This four-day trans-disciplinary conference attends to the manifold and diverse relationships - actual and potential - between landscape, environment and performance; it draws together artists, practitioners and academics from such fields as geography, archaeology, anthropology, performance, music and dance studies, media studies, museology, cultural and environmental policy, folklore studies, art history.
The conference committee welcomes participation from all disciplines and from varying research approaches, both scolarly and practice-led.
We invite proposals for papers, presentations, dialogues, showings, interventions, performances and workshops in all formats.
DEADLINE: 1 DECEMBER 2008
Please send proposals and abstracts of no more than 300 words to: firstname.lastname@example.org
or to the organisers at:
Aberystwyth SY23 3AJ
