Contested Environments: A Postgraduate Workshop

Thursday 7th June 2012 (09:15-17:30)
If you wish to attend, please email

An environment is a complex site of meaning in which a range of tensions, relations and contestations are sustained, played out, fought, won and lost. So commonplace are contestations in and over environments, that the subject has been high on research agendas across the arts, humanities and the social sciences in recent years. This postgraduate workshop aimed to reflect such interdisciplinarity in bringing together postgraduate research from a range of academic disciplines.

Papers were followed by a roundtable discussion with responses from Professor Stephen Daniels and Dr. Briony McDonagh from the Department of Geography at the University of Nottingham.

Organised by Jemima Matthews and Jennifer Rich.

Funded by the AHRC Landscape & Environment Programme and the Department of English at the University of Nottingham.
