CFP: Uplandish – New Perspectives on Northern England’s ‘Wild’ Places, York St John Uni, 30 June 2017. Abstract deadline now passed.

Few places in England are as closely associated with wilderness as the moors and fells north of the River Trent. Yet the iconography of this region occupies a central place in the country’s cultural geography. This conference seeks to interrogate the mythologies of England’s northern uplands and to understand the ideological processes that have allowed their material reproduction, many of their less flattering significations and perhaps some of their political potential to remain hidden. This interdisciplinary conference is open to scholars working in English Literature, Cultural Studies, Creative Writing, Art History, Fine Art, Photography, Film Studies, Media Studies, Critical Heritage Studies, Geography, Politics and Sociology.
