Description
Everywhere and Nowhere Symposium

The Landscape, Space, Place research group is pleased to announce its tenth annual postgraduate workshop, co-organised and hosted by the Schools of English and Geography at the University of Nottingham.

Keynote Speaker: Professor Stephen Daniels (University of Nottingham)

Imagined spaces are engaged with on a daily basis, whether they be in the novels we read, the news reports we hear, or in the forthcoming development posters we see around our towns and cities. These imagined spaces are multiple and mutable, coming into conflict with one another and the values they embody. With the physical and imaginary both influencing one another, imagined spaces have a diverse and meaningful impact on lived experience, affecting the way we conceive of and interact with the places and landscapes around us.

This symposium aims to emphasize the role of the imagination in the representation of space and place and to explore the ways these imagined spaces engage with and shape ‘real’ spaces and identities.

This is a one-day, interdisciplinary symposium that seeks to offer postgraduate students an opportunity to present related work at any stage of their research in a friendly and supportive environment.

Final times and locations to be confirmed.
