Uplandish: New Perspectives on Northern England’s ‘Wild’ Places (30th June 2017)

Few places in England are as closely associated with wilderness as the moors and fells north of the River Trent. Yet the iconography of this region occupies a central place in the country’s cultural geography, as attested by the many tourists who tramp across ‘Lakeland’ and ‘Brontë Country’ each year. This conference seeks to interrogate the mythologies of England’s northern uplands and to understand the ideological processes that have allowed its material reproduction, many of its less flattering significations and perhaps some of its political potential to remain hidden.

Since the very cradle of civilization, Nature has been one of the secular concerns of poetry and philosophy. In a classic like Walden; or Life in the Woods (1854), Henry David Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately”. The woods would make him whole again; solitude and Nature would reactivate a claritas of mind in him that had apparently been overshadowed by human commerce. About a century later, Ezra Pound sang in The Cantos: “Learn of the green world what can be thy place / In scaled invention or true artistry” (81/541), aware as he was of the fact that the world is a subtle ecology of vast dimensions that needs our attention and respect.
