Humans – Artis Natura, vol. 2, n° 1 – Winter 2018

The editorial committee at Artis Natura is searching for emerging artists and researchers to contribute to a thematic issue on its cultural online platform. This project has taken the form of a blog reviewed and published by an editorial committee, where researchers, artists, and writers can share reflections on the reciprocal relationship between humans and nature.

 

This third issue will focus on humans. The questioning of anthropocentrism, stimulated by the realities of the current environmental crisis, has raised concerns about the space that humanity occupies in the natural world.

Writing the Black Country

updated: 
Monday, March 5, 2018 - 11:19am
The University of Wolverhampton
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 30, 2018

Writing the Black Country is a blog edited by Dr Paul McDonald and R. M. Francis, from the Centre of Transnational and Transcultural Research at University of Wolverhampton in the UK. It's designed to showcase writing about England's industrial Midlands, and we are interested particularly in poetry and short prose pieces that focus on specific areas within the region.

We're less interested in writing about the region generally, but are looking for site, place or area specific work. For example, using a town, a street, a site as a point of departure or as setting for a work of fiction or poetry.

In time, this blog will transition, becoming an online, interactive literary map.

In recent years there has been a growth in the academic literature related to travel to sites related to tragedy and death. Labeled as dark tourism or thanatourism, this research has focused on typologizing dark tourism supply and demand, the ethical considerations regarding the commodification of death, as the ways in which death and tragedy are presented to a post-modern consumer society, and how dark tourism sites can be used for reconciliation and healing.
