Session 5: People and Place

About this Event

In Session 4, our second Keynote, Dr Louise Purbrick raised questions of activism, exploited peoples and landscapes, leading to the penultimate themes of the symposium ‘Practicing Landscape: Land, Histories and Transformation’. In this week’s theme PEOPLE AND PLACE, our panel teases out questions of community, alternative voices, gender politics and experiences of landscape including embodiment and auto-ethnographic practices.

The format of this event is that there are three 20 minute presentations, chaired by a respondent.

PEOPLE AND PLACE:

Dr Nicky Bird (The Glasgow School of Art), ‘Raging: Revisiting Raging Dyke Network

Jordan Whitewood-Neal (MRes student, University of Brighton), ‘Epistemological Hinterlands: Non-Normative Embodiment and Sublime Perceptions of Landscape

Dr Jo Vergunst (Department of Anthropology, University of Aberdeen), ‘Exploring landscape decision-making with the arts: agency, scale and temporality
