"Corridor Talk:" Conservation Humanities and the Future of Europe's National Parks

New DFG Project at the RCC


The RCC has successfully secured funding for a new DFG project, “Corridor Talk: Conservation Humanities and the Future of Europe’s National Parks,” which will start in 2020. The project will bring together postdoctoral researchers at the RCC and the University of Leeds to work together in exploring the cultural dimensions of conservation in three transnational protected areas: Pyrenees National Park, Bavarian Forest & Šumava National Parks, and the Wadden Sea National Parks. The RCC’s Katie Ritson, whose book on the literary and historical imagination of coastal lowlands was published in 2018, is one of the principal investigators in this project, which will run for three years.
