  • Facilitated by Professor Susan Broomhall (UWA), ARC Future Fellow, 2018 Co-Director, ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions.
  • Featuring Professor Jeff Malpas (University of Tasmania) and Assistant Professor Chen Yang (College of Architecture and Urban Planning, Tongji University, Shanghai).

This Postgraduate Advanced Training Seminar (PATS) will bring established scholars in place and heritage studies together with postgraduates to explore issues between emotions, the non-human world, the environment, space and place.

Students and early career scholars will have the opportunity to discuss their own research.

This PATS is explicitly interdisciplinary and exploratory, and intended to allow students from many disciplines to encounter issues that transcend their own research field and to situate their own research in the interdisciplinary context.

Jeff Malpas is Distinguished Professor at the University of Tasmania and Visiting Distinguished Professor at La Trobe University. He was founder and, until 2005, Director of the University of Tasmania’s Centre for Applied Philosophy and Ethics. He is the author or editor of 21 books on topics in philosophy, art, architecture and geography. His work is grounded in post-Kantian thought, especially the hermeneutical and phenomenological traditions, as well as in analytic philosophy of language and mind. He is currently working on topics including the ethics of place, the failing character of governance, the materiality of memory, the topological character of hermeneutics, the place of art, and the relation between place, boundary and surface.

Chen Yang is Assistant Professor in Landscape Architecture in the College of Architecture and Urban Planning (CAUP), Tongji University, Shanghai. He is a member of the International Scientific Committee for Documentation of Cultural Heritage (CIPA) and the Deputy Secretary General of the Chinese Society of Landscape Architecture Cultural Landscape Committee. He was a key researcher in the first systematic cultural landscape research in China in 2011 for which he designed one of the earliest digital geo-database for cultural landscape heritage in China. His research and practice focuses on digital heritage landscape conservation and management in cross-cultural contexts, currently as project leader for a digital heritage landscape research project supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of China.

This event is co-sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions and the Institute of Advanced Studies at The University of Western Australia.
