[UPDATE] Paving the Way: Roads, Rivers, and Railways in Culture and Criticism

full name / name of organization: 
Natures 2014 [featuring Dr. Cheryll Glotfelty as the plenary speaker]
contact email: 
gradengl@lasierra.edu

This conference will explore the ways in which culture has shaped and been shaped by the ever-growing and changing sources of human expansion. From ancient game trails to winding river routes, from the roads of the Roman empire to the railroads of the British Empire, from the multi-laned freeways of modernity to the internet of the new millennium, humans have marked and been marked by the earth while pushing against their physical limitations. In a parallel way, people have pushed against the ideologies of their community and forged new paths into and through social consciousness, reflecting, refining, and expanding these revolutionary ideas through cultural and critical expressions.
