Language, Landscape & the Sublime


residential short course

June 20-24 2016


symposium and creative gathering

June 29/30 2016

Dartington Hall & Sharpham House, Devon, England




a multidisciplinary symposium exploring the aesthetics, philosophy and poetics of landscape



This two-day symposium draws together artists and thinkers from a wide range of disciplines to explore ways in which landscape –– and the ways we represent it –– connects deeply to our lives and underpins our relationship to the world. We are also offering a five-day intensive residential short course immediately before the symposium.  The contemporary array of narratives of landscape expose how we feel about (and how we become estranged from) this astounding place we all share. As we contemplate the fragility of our planet fearful narratives confound our complex and worried entanglements with the world around us.


Language, Landscape and the Sublime is set within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in some of the UK’s most spectacular landscapes. This part of the UK contains more protected landscapes than any other, ranging from its sublime  coastline to the dark and brooding beauty of Dartmoor.
