14-16 June 2020 at Brecon Cathedral
A cross-disciplinary conference exploring notions of conviviality, social well-being, and the good life rooted in local landscapes, heritage, and social identities. Inspired by the writings of the American agrarian philosopher, conservationist, poet, and novelist Wendell Berry, participants will explore together how local landscapes and heritage have engendered or can support sustainable communities. The conference will feature keynote lectures, interdisciplinary paper panels, and a concluding panel discussion, as well as a Cathedral tour and a possible walk taking in local landscape and heritage.
