Location: Online

Professor David Higgins and Dr Pippa Marland will discuss the Land Lines project and the resurgence of modern British nature writing.

Land Lines explored British nature writing from the late eighteenth century to the present day. A collaboration between researchers from the Universities of Leeds, Sussex and St Andrews, Land Lines involved public events such as a museum exhibition, public talks, school visits and a family fun day.

The talk will explore the process and findings of the project and its heightened relevance as the British public return to nature during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Land Lines was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by the Leeds School of English.
