About this event

Confetti Live and NTU presents Robert Macfarlane’s Lecture Livestream. This live broadcast has been curated by Confetti and Nottingham Trent University in association with Nottingham City of Literature and University of Nottingham.

The annual UNESCO lecture aims to provide a platform for leading writers and thinkers to share their ideas and promote Nottingham city’s wide-ranging expertise on international literature, literacy and the wider creative economy.

Robert is renowned for his writing on landscape, memory, place and nature. His books have been widely adapted for film, television and radio, and he has collaborated with many artists, photographers and musicians. Robert Macfarlane's Underland, perhaps the most eagerly anticipated non-fiction book of 2019, takes us on a journey into the worlds beneath our feet. From the ice-blue depths of Greenland's glaciers to the underground networks by which trees communicate, from Bronze Age burial chambers to the rock art of remote Arctic sea-caves, this is a deep-time voyage into the planet's past and future, and into darkness and its meanings. Global in its geography, gripping in its voice and haunting in its implications, it is both an ancient and an urgent work.
