Renowned author Terry Gifford, an authority on John Muir, delivers this year’s Art & Nature keynote lecture: John Muir: Transatlantic Influences. Muir was a naturalist, writer, conservationist, and founder of the Sierra Club. His ideas about nature continue to resonate today, a century after his death.

Gifford is an authority on John Muir, author of Reconnecting With John Muir: Essays in Post-Pastoral Practice (2006), and editor of John Muir: The Eight Wilderness-Discovery Books (1992) and John Muir: His Life and Letters and Other Writings (1996). His book The Joy of Climbing (2004) contains four chapters on Muir and Yosemite climbing. His other publications include Green Voices: Understanding Contemporary Nature Poetry (1995, 2nd edition, 2011), Pastoral (1999), Ted Hughes (2009), and seven collections of poetry, including Al Otro Lado del Aguila (2011), a dual language collection with Christopher North. He has also co-edited several books, most recently Women in Transit Through Literary Liminal Spaces (2013) with Teresa Gomez. A collector of the paintings of Julian Cooper and a pioneering British ecocritic, Gifford is Visiting Scholar at Bath Spa University’s Centre for Writing and Environment, UK, and Senior Research Fellow and Profesor Honorifico at the University of Alicante, Spain.

Guests are invited to a pre-lecture reception that features hors d’oeuvres, drinks, classical guitar music by Nicholas Yrizarry, and the opportunity to meet the speaker.
