On the 4th & 5th July 2013 the conference: "Visualising the Rural" will take place at the University of Cumbria (Learning Gateway, Carlisle Campus Fusehill Street). Organised by staff of the photography department it aims to bring together theory and practice in rethinking rural space. For further details, please see:
or contact: Katrin Joost (firstname.lastname@example.org)
This conference aims to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary debate questioning the meaning of the contemporary rural landscape seen through photography. What does it mean to live in rural space? Does or can photography shape our understanding of the rural? What does the rural realm mean to the urban population? How do we view and evaluate rural depictions within the context of the wider contemporary art world?
