We aim to explore past and present perceptions of woodlands in the UK by bringing different people together with various expertise and ideas. This includes perspectives from art, science, archaeology and literature. Importantly, each project is locally-situated and includes a strong element of local participation.
Projects and outputs
2nd year module at Department of English and Related Literature, University of York
This module arose out of the collaboration between artist Jo Dacombe, environmental archaeologist Suzi Richer, and literary specialist Freya Sierhuis. It aims to inspire students to think about woodlands from a variety of literary, historical, scientific and artistic perspectives, using a conceptual approach focused on notions such as ‘place’ to generate an interdisciplinary dialogue. It also included two workshops that took place at St Nick's Nature Reserve.
