Environment and Identity Conference

20-21 July 2011, Pendennis Castle, Falmouth, Cornwall

Hosted by Exeter University and English Heritage at Pendennis Castle, and also supported by the PPRE (Peninsula Partnership for the Rural Environment), this conference is part of a series of research networking events funded by the AHRC Landscape and Environment Programme. Previous workshops organised by the network were designed to explore early modern discourses of environmental change and sustainability. The conference will extend this scope and bring together scholars interested in a variety of time periods and subjects from across the humanities, social sciences, development studies and policy forums. Its purpose is to generate interdisciplinary, comparative thematic and cross-period collaborations to explore the ways in which individuals and groups express, negotiate and transform their identities in response to changing environmental conditions. The interdisciplinary panels address specific issues under the following broad themes: landscapes and communities, climates, identities, resources, and global narratives of environmental change.
