International Conference Nature(s):
Designing, Experiencing, Representing the Natural Environment, 18th to 21st Centuries
University of Nantes, 6-8 June 2013
The conference wishes to question the relationships between human beings and urban nature, in France, Britain and Ireland from the 18th century onwards, with a view to highlighting how consciously men and women have acknowledged the artificial and/or paradoxical notion of acting upon nature in those centuries, especially in an urban context and as shown in such varied fields as aesthetics, literature or landscape studies.
