Event description
A workshop rethinking marginality in relation to landscape, human and more than human interactions

About this event

Organised by the AHRC funded ‘Unlocking Landscapes: History, Culture and Sensory Diversity in Landscape Use and Decision Making’ Network (more info here in conjunction with Karen Jones and her Wellcome Trust funded project, ‘The Lungs of the City’.

This workshop will take place on 16th September from 4.30-6.15pm on Zoom (including a screen break). Break out group discussions will be guided by key questions/statements shared by participants in advance (when signing up).

The aim is to share knowledge and experience in relation to people and landscape beyond the well-known urban park and garden. It is hoped this will also encourage networking between academics, practitioners and those involved in landscape decision making.

Some questions from the organising team to spark discussion at the event are as follows, but these are in no way comprehensive or without room for challenge:

• Is the use of the term marginal or marginalised a useful term? Who defines who falls into these groups – in terms of people, places and other non-human animals?

• How can we better contextualise conflicts and contested use and experiences of such spaces?

• What issues accompany changes in the character of previously marginal spaces, for example as part of gentrification or rewilding? Who becomes (re)marginalised in the process?

• How can we think more about people being ‘out of place in place’ and the subtlety of segregation in British landscapes?

• How can questions of space and contest learn from/integrate with approaches in intersectionality or decolonising the narrative?

• What are the tensions between ideals of beauty and the reality of use and experience? Both in the past in terms of political judgements about ‘beauty’ and current use of social media such as Instagram?

Zoom details will be sent out ahead of the event.
