Introducing the Corridor Talk Project

Our project “Corridor Talk: Conservation Humanities and the Future of Europe’s National Parks,” funded jointly by the German Research Council (DFG) and the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), launches officially on 1 February 2020 and runs for the next three years. Featuring a team of six researchers, three based at the University of Leeds and three at LMU Munich, this 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, and the Bavarian Forest and Šumava National Parks.
