XVIth Annual Conference

The Sophia Centre

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 human beings live in the cosmos, work that engages with history, anthropology, philosophy, archaeology and the arts.

This year's conference, sponsored by the Sophia Centre Press, explores the materiality of 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.

In so doing we are celebrating this year's designation as Wales Year of the Sea and recognising the achievements of Wales' dark-sky-reserves.

Abstract submission has now closed.
