The Masculinities in the British Landscape Conference will be held at Harlaxton Manor, University of Evansville, outside of Grantham, Lincolnshire, from 14-16 May 2015, with keynote speaker Professor Howard Williams on ‘From Stonehenge to the National Memorial Arboretum: Megaliths and Martial Masculinity in the British Landscape’
The gendered landscape is a topic ripe for exploration in the academic world. Following recent work done in women in the landscape, this conference seeks to examine the ways that various masculinities could be carved into or acted upon the British landscape. These questions can be explored from a variety of approaches and a variety of disciplines, from landscapes of masculine employment to depictions of male control of land, and all points in between. Recognizing that there are many ways to ‘be’ a man, there are therefore many ways to display masculinity, and this conference seeks to also explore questions of masculinity, class, ethnicity, culture, and other aspects of identity through the landscape.
