The “You Are Here” Interdisciplinary Conference on Place, Space, and Embodiment is delighted to announce that Dr. Derek Gladwin from the University of British Columbia will be our featured keynote at the 2017 Conference.
Dr. Gladwin’s interdisciplinary research and teaching broadly explore transformations in environment and society through 20th-/21st-Century British and Irish literature, as well as film and media culture. His work is situated in the environmental and energy humanities, examining issues related to contested territory, literary cartography, spatial injustices, narratives of fear about energy futures, and cultural approaches to climate change, as they relate to the United Kingdom and Ireland (and the greater North Atlantic), and also global culture.
