Dear all, 

 

We’re excited to announce the autumn schedule of Literary and Visual Landscapes, a seminar series which brings together a diverse range of scholars and students from the environmental and geo-humanities. For this term we are keeping the series online, so all are welcome.

 

For our first instalment of the series, Dr Noreen Masud (Durham University) will be presenting Slippage and Fakery in Willa Cather's Prairie Landscapes. This session will take place on Wednesday 13th October, at the usual time of 4:30-6pm UK time, on Zoom. Please join us for what will be a fascinating paper and discussion! 

 

Later this term we have invited Dr Susanne Ferwerda (Utrecht University) to speak on The Waves, the Ocean: Boats, Borders and Refugee Bodies in Behrouz Boochani's No Friend but the Mountains, and Dr Anushka Peres (University of Nevada, Reno) for a paper on Queer Ecovisual Rhetorics and Settler Colonial Landscapes. Details of the full semester’s events can be found on the Eventbrite page where you can also book free tickets for the upcoming seminars: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/literary-and-visual-landscapes-autumn-2021-tickets-173046255007. A Zoom meeting link will be circulated to ticket-holders in advance of each session. 

 

This year’s LVL series is very generously funded by the University of Bristol’s Centre for Environmental Humanities, School of Geography, and Department of English. We are very grateful for this support and excited to present such a diverse series, bringing together scholars exploring landscapes across a range of spatial and temporal contexts, with an emphasis on queer and decolonial spaces. 

  

We hope to see you there! 

  

Best,  

The LVL Team
