RANE, in collaboration with University College Falmouthâ€™s Department of Writing, are pleased to welcome back author, poet and novelist, Paul Kingsnorth â€“ one of the UKâ€™s most original, and controversial writers on the environment:
Thursday 15th March 2012 @ 5.30pm, Woodlane Lecture Theatre, Woodlane Campus,Â University College Falmouth
Paulâ€™s first book, One No, Many Yeses (2003), explored the rise of the global resistance movement. In 2008, his polemic travelogue Real England: The Battle against the Bland was described in the Independent as â€œa watershed study, a crucially important bookâ€. In 2009, Paul co-founded the Dark Mountain Project, a global network that aims â€œto bring together writers and artists, thinkers and doers, to assault the established citadels of literature and thought, and to begin to redraw the maps by which we navigate the places and times in which we find ourselvesâ€. Paul is also a former editor of the Ecologist magazine and a frequent contributor to national newspapers.
Please note: This event is free and open to all, but those wishing to attend need to register online by following this link: Lecture Registration
