About: The Environmental Humanities are slowly gaining ground in Scottish research environments. ‘Ecocultures: Glasgow’s Festival of Environmental Research, Policy and Practice’ offers an opportunity for interdisciplinary engagement with a wide number of issues of the Scottish environment and landscape.

This dynamic one-day festival will provide a space to explore existent or potential dialogues between environmental researchers, practitioners and policy-makers. Through a programme of seminars, readings and papers from leading academics, artists, activist and politicians, we aim to explore the current state of the Scottish environment and its place in contemporary art and research.

The topic is deliberately broad, inviting contributors to strike new ground in the following areas:

• Environmental Art(s) / Art(s) and the Environment
• Land Reform
• Environmental Protest
• Islands and Archipelagos
• Landscape and Gender
• Petroculture
• Urban Ecology
• Conservation
• Walking and Psychogeography
• Future Landscapes
• Landscape and Heritage
• Imagined Landscapes
