THE ALCHEMICAL LANDSCAPE: Counterculture, Occulture and the Geographic Turn

Corpus Christi College, University of Cambridge 23rd March 2015

An interdisciplinary symposium presented by the Cambridge University Counterculture Research Group

An increasing number of writers, artists and film-makers are re-investing the British landscape 
with esoteric and mythic imagery. From the revival of 'Folk Horror' to the cross-over between 
magical and artistic practice, this 'enchanted' representation of the rural works as both a link 
to the past and an articulation of pressing contemporary concerns.

This special one-day symposium at the University of Cambridge seeks to explore the creative,
aesthetic and political implications of this'geographic turn'.

Confirmed
speakers include:

Andy Sharp (English Heretic)
Sharron Kraus (Friends and
Enemies, Lovers and Strangers)
Drew Mulholland (Mount Vernon Arts Lab / The Norwood Variations)
Chris Lambert (Tales from the Black Meadow)
