About the conference

This conference seeks exciting disciplinary and transdisciplinary proposals from scholars working in fields such as cultural studies, literary studies, cultural politics/history, creative writing, film and media studies, area studies, photography, and fine art, interested in examining the different ways in which human beings respond and relate to, as well as debate and interact with landscape.

In 2009, the one-day symposium 'Land and Identity', held at the University of Derby, brought together a diverse body of academics to discuss themes and intersections across multiple areas of research interest. This follow-up event, hosted by the Identity, Conflict and Representation Research Centre at the University of Derby in collaboration with the Centre for Studies in Literature at the University of Portsmouth, aims to develop inter-disciplinary debates around the idea of 'Affective Landscapes'.
