  • ·Indicative themes of interest to the conference include:
  • ·The materials and technologies of bridges – the heritage of form and function
  • ·National and local iconographies of bridges
  • ·Narratives of bridge construction and destruction
  • ·Communities united and communities divided by bridges
  • ·Poetics of the bridge - representing the bridge in art, literature and film
  • ·Love and death on the bridge
  • ·The language of the bridge – metaphors and meanings in social life
  • ·Touring bridges – travel narratives and tourism economies
  • ·Alternative bridge crossings – tunnels and ferries
