Yale Environmental Humanities is pleased to announce the (Re)thinking Landscape Conference, to take place September 29–October 1, 2022. The conference is organized by Environmental Humanities affiliates Jane Tylus (Andrew Downey Orrick Professor of Italian and Professor of Comparative Literature), Lydia Tuan (PhD Student, Italian and Film & Media Studies), Abigail Fields (PhD Student, French), and Siobhan Angus (Postdoctoral Fellow, History of Art), along with graduate students and postdoctoral fellows from departments including History, History of Art, Religious Studies, and the School of Art.
The organizers invite papers from interdisciplinary scholars working at the convergence of land, representation, and politics across media, geographies, and time periods. Through the framework of the Environmental Humanities, this conference seeks to re-think landscape studies and the definition of landscape through a cross-disciplinary dialogue across the humanities and social sciences.
Keynote speakers will include Nick Estes (University of Minnesota) and Tiffany Lethabo King (University of Virginia), as well as a film screening of Logos Zanzotto (2021, Italy, dir. Denis Brotto), followed by Q&A with the director. For more information and a Call for Papers, visit the conference listing here.
This conference is generously sponsored by The Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Memorial Fund and the Yale Environmental Humanities program.
