This two-day workshop focuses on the contribution of the humanities disciplines—history, art history, literature, philosophy, and cultural studies—to studying the aesthetics of the energy landscape and responses to it. Energy technologies are here broadly interpreted, including but not limited to hydropower dams, watermills, oil derricks, oil production wells, coal/nuclear power plants, windmills, wind farms, solar panels, solar farms, and energy transmission lines. The workshop will be held 27-28 May 2016 in Luleå, Sweden. The planned output is a themed issue of an interdisciplinary journal using selected papers from the workshop.
