Rivers, Mountains, Sky and Sea: The Materiality of Spirit and Place

Sixteenth Annual Sophia Centre Conference
Faculty of Humanities and the Performing Arts
University of Wales Trinity Saint David
Lampeter 7-8 July 2018

Welcome to the conference page for the Sixteenth Annual Sophia Centre conference. The Sophia Centre is a research and teaching centre in the Faculty of Humanities and the Performing Arts at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David. Its remit is the study of the way that we live in the cosmos. This year's conference in Lampeter explores spirit and place, asking how we engage with the stuff of which the world is made - earth, water and sky - rivers, sea, mountains and stars. How do we relate to our greater environment and how do we live in harmony with it?

We are also celebrating this year's designation as Wales Year of the Sea and recognising the achievements of Wales' dark-sky-reserves.
