Event description

Ice and Sea: Culture and Geography

BISR Population, Environment and Resources Workshop

Esther Leslie (Birkbeck College) and Klaus Dodds (Royal Holloway) introduce their recent and forthcoming books for Reaktion on Liquid Crystals and Ice, respectively. Taking Caspar David Friedrich's Sea of Ice as a motif of both catastrophe and loss, as well as movement and human activity under industrial capitalism, the workshop will explore and debate the culture and geography of the globe’s melting ice mass and its effects on the world’s oceans. 

Responses from Susan Schuppli (Goldsmiths) and Stephanie Jones (Southampton) will further open the discussion with reflections from the realms of art, architecture, law and literature.

Free event open to all but space is limited
