Hope Park hosts second Spaces of Affectivity symposiumWednesday 16 September 2015
Affective approaches to spatiality, location mapping, spaces and places were discussed at a one-day symposium held at Hope Park.
Designed to assess the range of inter-disciplinary interest in the topics, Spaces of Affectivity 2: Exploring/Negotiating Socio-Spatial Cultural Productions of Identity, focused on several themes.
Contributors discussed how spatiality generates cultural identity and underscores individual and communal explanations of territory, as well as movement through the landscape.
The symposium expanded collaboration to a wider cross-disciplinary encounter between human, geographical and religious sciences, building on foundations laid down in the first symposium in July 2014.
Principal Lecturer in Geography Dr Janet Speake and Professor Mary Mills led the symposium.
