Description

The British Society for Literature and Science Winter Symposium 2018: Environments of Literature and Science

The Environmental Humanities have gained momentum relatively recently, contributing to developing theories of the Anthropocene, responding to rapid changes in climate, and addressing our changing relationship with the world around us. They have also raised questions of how we define, shape, protect, and imagine our environments. This symposium provides a space to consider such questions, while also encompassing a wider sense of environment. How do we discuss the environments of literature – its production, dissemination, and reception? How do we understand the environments of science – its construction, its laboratories, its spaces of discourse? In what environments do we engage with Literature and Science as an interdisciplinary field, and in what environments do we teach, research, and encounter interactions between literature and science? These questions are bound up with, and have the potential to greatly impact, the environmental turn in humanities scholarship.

This one-day symposium addresses these themes and more, with an interdisciplinary array of papers, workshops on research and publishing environments, a roundtable discussion, and a keynote from John Parham (University of Worcester) on ‘Biggish Data: Friedrich Engels, Material Ecology, and Victorian Data’. See the website for the draft programme.

Free and open to all, but please sign up as there are limited places available. A vegetarian lunch, refreshments, and a wine reception are provided. Non-speakers are very welcome, indeed encouraged to attend.

Registration will close on Friday 16 November.
