Atlantic Archipelagos Research Consortium

The Atlantic Archipelagos Research Consortium is a collaboration between international academic partners, including Emory University, University of Georgia, University of Exeter, National University of Ireland Galway, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin, the Universities of London, of Liverpool and of York. The conceptual aim of AARC is to analyze the tensions in coupling identity and nationhood with ecology and the environment, relationships usually underplayed or overlooked in similar projects. To this end, we have selected potential participants with certain specialisms: the Atlantic and capitalism; early modern culture and transnational exchange; literary and cultural theory; literary environmentalism and nature writing; cartography and literary mapping; archipelagic, regional and national identities.
