Event Description

This conference aims to provide a platform for an interdisciplinary debate questioning the meaning of the contemporary rural landscape seen through photography.

Over 40 academics and artists will present papers as part of panels discussing themes such as: the question of habits and conventions of looking at rural space, rural identity, the post-industrial rural and the differentiation between and meaning of rural and urban spaces. (For full details see the conference schedule)

What does it mean to live in rural space? Does or can photography shape our understanding of the rural? What does the rural realm mean to the urban population? How do we view and evaluate rural depictions within the context of the wider contemporary art world?
