Natural Horizons call for papers

Natural Horizons: Interdisciplinary Dimensions of Space, Landscape, and Environment.

24th February 2022

Call for Papers!

As the global community arrives at a decisive moment in the collective effort to tackle climate change, significant questions regarding human interactions with the natural environment have resurged. If a seismic shift in the way we perceive the natural world is needed to mitigate the effects of global warming, a wide range of critical perspectives will be required to meet this challenge. Our understanding of the natural world and it’s future is being evolved in the Arts and Humanities, as diverse and creative approaches to spatial and environmental entities deconstruct hegemonic boundaries separating disciplines in a more-than-human world.

During this free one-day online symposium, we hope to spark interdisciplinary conversations between researchers working on the categories of space, place, landscape and environment.

The day will also include keynote presentations from:

  • Dr Lesley Wylie (Amazonian environment and literature)
  • Dr Susan Kilby (medieval landscape history)
  • Dr Henna Asikainen (socially engaged arts practise)

Submissions welcomed particularly from PGR’s and Early Career Researchers in all disciplines across Arts and Humanities and beyond.

Abstracts of up to 250 words for presentations of 15 minutes to be sent to IXCO27@student.bham.ac.uk by Friday 10th December 2021.
