Regionalism and Representation Symposium
Regionalism and Representation: An Interdisciplinary Day Symposium
University of Warwick, 26th April 2013
In April 2013, Professor Philip Payton, Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter, will spend a week at the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) at the University of Warwick as a Visiting Fellow. As part of his visit, Dr Gemma Goodman (English) and Dr Rachel Moseley (Film and Television Studies), in conjunction with the IAS, will host a one-day interdisciplinary symposium, 'Regionalism and Representation'. Questions of regionality are increasingly significant in a wide range of disciplines including Literary Studies, Film and Television Studies, Theatre Studies, History, Geography and Cultural Policy and it is hoped that this event will enable us to think productively about region and representation across multiple fields of study. The organisers hope that the symposium will also be able to welcome cultural practitioners and policy makers as well as academic colleagues.
Professor Philip Payton, Director of the Institute of Cornish Studies at the University of Exeter, will give the keynote presentation.
The provisional programme is now available to view here.
