CMT Spring Symposium

Wednesday 20 April 2022

The University of Winchester Culture-Media-Text Research Centre is delighted to announce the Call for Papers for a one-day symposium on ‘Intersections between Culture, Arts and Nature’.

The recent lockdown saw many of us finding solace in the natural world for its restorative attributes, and nature has long been celebrated and exploited as a unique selling point by marketing and advertising industries as a signifier of untainted health, wellbeing and truth. This symposium seeks to explore our changing relationship with nature and our place within it, encouraging an interdisciplinary focus on diverse identities from local, national, transnational and global perspectives.

Please send abstract proposals (250 words max) for a 20-minute paper and a brief biographical statement (100 words max) to Prof. Laura Hubner / Dr Daniel Varndell by 25 February 2022. We welcome expressions of interest from inside and outside academia.

For more detail on the aims and dialogues related to the symposium, please visit the CMT page of the website.
