Nordic Geographers Meeting 2015

I have just returned from the Nordic Geographer’s Meeting which took place in Tallinn and Tartu, delivering my first academic paper. The conference theme was Geographical Imagination: Interpretations of Nature, Art and Politics and my session was called ‘Constructing landscape, heritage and belonging’. I spoke about my project in Wales, Petrified in Storyland, which explores the connections between legends, heritage and landscape in Wales through photography.

The conference was a fascinating insight into another discipline and an opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the academic reach of the field of geography as well as to reassess the scope of my own areas of research.

The post-conference tour was to Setomaa, home to the Setos are an ethnic and linguistic minority living in an area covering South East Estonia and North West Russia. Renowned in the world for their impressive vocal heritage.
