Centre for Modern Studies
Friday 7 February 2014, 5.15PM to 7.00pm
In this seminar Sam Perks, Harriet Ryder and Emelia Quinn will examine different approaches to the natural world, from the naturalist impulse to anthropomorphise non-human nature for public consumption, to parallels between animal life (and death) and female repression. How do we use language – technical, fictional, emotive – to interpret the natural world and serve thematic and religious motives?
Location: Seminar room BS/008, Berrick Saul Building
