Workshop 4

Transnational Dimensions of the Local

February 20-22, 2017

 
The workshop examines geographic-perceptual landscapes operative on the subnational level. Examples for such landscapes include bioregionalism, tribalism, the borderland, the wasteland, the ecovillage, and others. A particular focus is on the representational and narrative forms in which such new environments are imagined and negotiated.

All lectures and sessions are free and open to the public.
