The PLaCE Research Centre is running two workshops;

'Catchment' workshop is intended to contribute to our developing working relationship with both Bristol City Council and with members of the international Mapping Spectral Traces Network with a particular interest in water issues and bio-regions and to launch a new international network.

PlaCE/Mapping Spectral Traces workshop is intended to develop and broaden the ongoing conversation between PLaCE/LAND2 and members of the international Mapping Spectral Traces network of artists, landscape designers, performers and academics working in the emergent fields of Memory and Landscape Studies.

This event will also serve as an introduction to the wide range of work undertaken by staff, doctoral students and recent graduates associated with PLaCE/LAND2 and builds on the Mapping Spectral Traces symposium organized by Prof Karen Till at Virginia Tech in October 2010 (see link below).

The day will consist of twenty-minute presentations by people connected with PLaCE/LAND2 and the Mapping Spectral Traces network and shorter presentations by recent graduate and doctoral students linked to PLaCE/LAND2. 

The keynote speaker for the day will be Mike Pearson, Professor of Performance Studies at the University of Aberystwyth, whose book Site-Specific Performance (2010) was recently published by Palgrave Macmillan. The respondent will Dr Ruth Jones, an international artist based in South Wales and ARHC Fellow in Creative and Performing Arts at the University of West England, Bristol.
