Please join us for this free symposium – Peter Larkin: Poetry, Phenomenology, Ecology – which brings together poets, philosophers, ecocritics, and theologians to discuss the poetry of Peter Larkin, whose work responds to the critically and environmentally neglected geography of the English Midlands. The symposium comprises two keynotes and two panels of poets and philosophers who will provide context for further, and broader, reflection on poetry, ecology, and philosophy. The day is designed to allow for maximum discussion with delegates, and Larkin's poetry will be circulated in advance. Larkin will also be present and give three readings—in the morning, afternoon, and at the close of the symposium. Confirmed speakers include Dr Cleo Hanaway-Oakley (University of Oxford), Dr Nick Lawrence (University of Warwick), Professor John Milbank (University of Nottingham), Dr Jonathan Skinner (University of Warwick), and Dr Harriet Tarlo (Sheffield Hallam University).
