This conference, co-organised by the Cultural Geography Group, will be held in Wageningen (20-21 June) and Leeds (25-26). Registration is now open. See link below for programme details.

18 June 2013 Elvis in the Bush: Festivals, Growth and Identity in Regional Australia
At a time when agricultural decline in much of Australia has been compounded by drought, and many small towns are losing population, what impact can festivals have on reviving rural areas’ economies, social interaction and identity? Prof. John Connell (University of Sydney, Australia) will be giving a lecture on this theme on 18 June from 11-12:30 in Gaia, Room 1. This lectured is organised by the Cultural Geography Group and supported by WASS.
