Research

Veronica Fibisan's research is a practice-based creative project. She is exploring key sites on the British shoreline through the practical medium of poetry and the theoretical lens of ecocriticism. The interaction between the human and more than human world at the periphery of the land, in light of current anthropogenic environmental issues is at the forefront of our understanding of positive changes that would benefit both worlds in the future.

The power of poetry to become an outstanding contributor to the understanding of anthropogenic environmental change in a landscape where it is becoming most evident.
