‘There and back again’: An Interdisciplinary Postgraduate Workshop on Travel

Monday 22nd June 2015

University of Nottingham

Keynote Speaker: Professor Andrew Thacker (Nottingham Trent University)

This one-day interdisciplinary workshop aims to emphasise and explore the richness of travel in its multivalent forms, from antiquity to modernity and beyond. We will consider travel in relation to social, political, cultural, and environmental forces, as we ask how it is interpreted across the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

Papers for the day will cover the following themes:

  • Home & Displacement
  • Exploration
  • Wandering
  • Border Crossings
  • Encountering the Supernatural
  • Sites of Travel
  • Modes, (E)Motion & Perception
  • Travel in Print

Further details can be found in the attached programme and poster.

All are welcome to attend this free event, although places are limited. To book your place, please email by Monday 15th June: lsp.pgworkshop@nottingham.ac.uk

 

Organising Committee:  Alexander Harby, Alice Insley, Hollie Johnson, Mark Lambert, Xiaofan Xu & Emma Zimmerman
