Friday September 17th 2010


The theme identified for critical consideration in Conversation 1 is:


‘Environmental Writing and Inspiration’.


 

The event will explore the kinds of environmental writing and writers’ voices (past and present) that prompt identifiable social responses and structures of value:


- How are scale(s) of environmental change exposed and made affective?


- How does the representation of changing habitats and ecosystems inspire environmental action?


- Is there a continent-based or cultural geography characterising the most influential texts in CEW?


- What are the limits of CEW as inspiration for change, or unity of purpose?


Participants should download the following four documents before the conversation takes place.
