Corridor Talk

The project “Corridor Talk: Conservation Humanities and the Future of Europe's National Parks” is funded jointly by the German Research Council (DFG) and the UK's Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and runs from 2020 to 2023.

Featuring a team of six researchers, three based at the University of Leeds and three at LMU Munich, this three-year project applies interdisciplinary perspectives derived from a new field partly pioneered at Leeds, conservation humanities, which examines the humanistic aspects of biodiversity loss. These perspectives will be used to consider the past, present, and future of four of Europe’s most iconic national parks: Wadden Sea National Parks, Pyrénées National Park, the Bavarian Forest, and Šumava National Parks.

The project's network coordinator is Pavla Šimková, with codirector Katie Ritson.
