Landscape Wilderness and The Wild

Landscape Wilderness and The Wild

26-28 March 2015, Newcastle University, UK

This international cross-disciplinary conference, organised by the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at Newcastle University, will bring together scholarly communities for knowledge exchange and debate. It aims to consider the discourses that swirl around concepts of wilderness, wildness, wildscape, re-wilding, wilding and the wild. It will seek to explore the place of these notions in the contemporary imagination, whilst giving an account of their continuing agency for academics, professionals and all those engaged in landscape issues. Landscape, Wilderness and The Wild will take place over two days at Newcastle University, with a third day of facilitated day trips to explore notions of wilderness and the wild in Northumberland, North Pennines and Wild Teesside.
