Green Voices Research Group


The Green Voices Research Group provides a focus for the study of ‘green culture’, and a forum and catalyst for the discussion of broader ‘green’/ecological issues.

Based in the School of Humanities & Creative Arts at the University of Worcester, the group brings together researchers in the ‘green humanities’ from media and cultural studies, English, art and design, and drama through events, collaborative projects and publications. It also actively seeks to develop interdisciplinary links with scholars across the University and beyond.

We are particularly keen to engage with individuals and community groups outside the University,and will be hosting or facilitating public events connected with environmental culture. Plans include an inaugural one-day symposium followed by a series of head-to-head talks with prominent green thinkers, book group discussions and film screenings.

The group is led by Dr John Parham, co-editor of the journal Green Letters: Studies in Ecocriticism, which is financially supported by the Universities of Worcester and Bath Spa.

We welcome enquiries from scholars wishing to develop or carry out projects as postgraduate students or post-doctoral researchers, and from groups and organisations wishing to collaborate on green cultural events.
