The Land Dialogues Conference takes place at Charles Sturt University, Wagga Wagga, Australia in April 2016.  CALL for papers on the theme. Land Dialogues is an interdisciplinary research and practice collaboration investigating the environmental humanities, place-making and the creative arts.

  • Analysis or application of existing or emergent dialogues with land in indigenous, pre-colonial, post-colonial and anti-colonial contexts.
