Detailed Description

FIELD TRIP FOUR: To the Bunker!

Led by Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam University, Co-convenor of the Space and Place Group), editor of In The Ruins of The Cold War Bunker

A coach will depart mid-afternoon to attend a private viewing of York Bunker plus a panel event in which Ian Klinke (Political Geographer, University of Oxford, tbc) will interrogate a panel of contributors to the edited collection, In The Ruins of The Cold War Bunker: Materiality, Affect and Meaning-Making to be published by Rowman & Littlefield International in June 2017 as part of their Place, Memory & Affect series. Due to space constraints within the bunker there will be two sittings of the panel session (alternating with the bunker tour).


The panel will comprise:
• Louise K. Wilson / Stephen Felmingham (Artists) (alternating between presenter and chair)
• Luke Bennett (editor of In the Ruins)
• Arno Geesink (Architect)
• Kevin Booth (Senior curator, English Heritage)
