Dark and Light: Receiving the Darkness

Seventeenth Annual Sophia Centre Conference
Faculty of Humanities and the Performing Arts
University of Wales Trinity Saint David
Lampeter 13-14 July 2019

Welcome to the conference page for the Seventeenth 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.

Light and Dark are two of the great extremes of our world, polarised as opposites. Separating day and night, underground and over-ground, their relationship occurs in many examples of religious practice, astrological systems, magic, myth, literature, the visual arts and the built environment.

This conference invites submissions from across academic disciplines to explore how the boundaries between, and nature of, light and dark, have been imagined, represented and used. Submissions are not restricted to any time period or culture.
