‘Landscape, Language and the Sublime’ is a a symposium and creative gathering that held 29-30 June 2016 in at Dartington Hall & Sharpham House, Devon, England. This two-day symposium draws together artists and thinkers from a wide range of disciplines to explore ways in which landscape – and the ways we represent it – connects deeply to our lives and underpins our relationship to the world.
This promises to be a engaging event, with opportunity for interdisciplinary dialogue, explorations of lived experience and creative collaborations. As part of this, I am looking forward to facilitating a participatory walk through the woodlands in which I invite participants to join me in three activities that are designed opportune critical reflection and representation on their own sensory experience individually and as part of a group. Following the walk I will share my ethnographic research conducted with walkers who have impaired vision (2012-2015) through my presentation ‘A world within reach: a sensorial anthropology of unseen landscapes and the experience of impaired vision’, referring back to our experiences during the walk.
A full programme in now available on the symposium website, here. If you cannot make the event but are interested to exchange ideas along the topics, do get in touch through he contact page.
