Event Description: This day conference explores imaginative and imaginary landscapes connecting folk and place in the creation of nations and their heritages. Land and Sea have played a significant role in imaginaries conjuring the place of cultural collectives. Therefore, a particular focus of the day is on landscapes on the edge of water – the waterscapes of rivers and their catchments, from source to sea; inland seas; and, archipelagic revisionings of peripheries and centres. The theme is illustrated by reference to a range of writers, poet-philosophers, inter-spiritual artists and creatives, such as Johannes Bobrowski, Mandy Haggith, Kathleen Jamie, John Moriarty, Robin Robertson, and Maria Simmons-Gooding.
