Special Issue "Layered Landscapes: Cultural Investigations in Northern British Edgelands"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 June 2019) | Viewed by 18988
Interests: contemporary visual arts in Britain; cultural landscapes and environments; Northern visual cultures, Islands and Border regions
We invite contributions to a Special Issue of Arts that will bring academics from the broad field of visual culture studies and practitioners from fine art, performance, photography, or digital media to the discussion of northern peripheral landscapes in Britain—either geographical or socially marginal. The issue brings relational perspectives and a focus on the edges—between space, sites, practices, and disciplines. Our concern is with landscapes not only layered with complementary or contradictory narratives, myths, and histories, but on spaces existing in a number of different registers, whether experienced through a geo-political, socio-economic, or nature/cultural lens.
