This one-day event aims to gather academic researchers, artists, writers, and other creative practitioners whose work focuses on land and identity. The aim of the symposium is to investigate the complex issues surrounding contemporary cultural discourses on land and identity – their production, construction, and reconstruction. The symposium will be structured around papers that offer disciplinary and trans-disciplinary approaches opening up discussion and new routes for research in a number of interrelated areas.The organizers are hoping to attract contributors from a wide variety of subjects and disciplines such as Archaeology, Cultural Studies, History, Geography, Languages, Literary Studies, Music, Politics, Social Anthropology, and the Visual & Creative Arts. Proposals by postgraduate students and early career academics will be welcome.
A peer-reviewed selection of papers will be published. The organizers are currently in discussion with a suitable academic publisher.
