Description

As part of the UK wide Being Human festival, Mapping the Borders is a week long event taking place in the Scottish Borders. On Sunday 19th of November 2017, a day of activity will take place in the Borders town of Jedburgh.

There will be two different, complimentary walks led by Prof Mike Collier and naturalist Keith Bowey, at 10am and 2pm respectively.

For the walks we recommend you wear strong footwear and bring waterproofs. We will be walking up to 4km over undulating paths/tracks and encountering some muddy sections, stiles, gates and flights of countryside steps.


WALKing the Line (walk 1)

Start 10am (apprx 1.5-2 hours)

Leave from The Bakery Studio, Rear of 11A Exchange Street, Jedburgh

Prof Mike Collier, will lead a Border walk in collaboration with naturalist Keith Bowey, interrogating the notion of borders from the non-human (and environmentally controversial) perspective of ‘alien’ (plant) species, linking this approach to recent social and political events. Prof Collier leads WALK (Walking, Art, Landscape and Knowledge) at the University of Sunderland, a research centre exploring how we creatively engage with the world as we walk through it. Keith Bowey runs GEES (Glead Ecological & Environmental Services.

This walk will loop north from Jedburgh.

The walk will finish back in Jedburgh and for those wishing can join the walk leaders over lunch (to be booked) and join in debate. http://walk.uk.net

A second, differently routed but complementary walk will take place at 2pm and we hope you will join us on that too.


Pushing Boundaries (walk 2)

Start 2pm (apprx 1.5-2 hours)

Leave from The Bakery Studio, Rear of 11A Exchange Street, Jedburgh

This walk led by naturalist Keith Bowey and Prof Mike Collier from University of Sunderland, is an ongoing conversation on the concept of borderlands’. Edgelands are typically the most bio diverse and this walk will explore the ‘more than human’ perspective of borderlands. This walk will include the Hutton Unconformity at Inchbonny and loop south from Jedburgh.
