David Borthwick on walking, access and accessibility
10th September 2020 | 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Join us for a talk by David Borthwick on walking, access and accessibility
Walking as practice
Dr David Borthwick
Reflecting on Helen Mirra’s Acts for placing woollen and linen, Dr David Borthwick discusses walking as a practice and draws on wider recent writing. He also discusses the assumptions that can lie behind walking practices, and the questions these raise concerning access and accessibility.
Dr David Borthwick is a Lecturer in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Glasgow. David’s research concerns modern and contemporary literary responses to the environment, at present focusing on poetic responses to landscape and place. David is interested in the ecopoetic strategies of a range of contemporary UK poets including John Burnside, Kathleen Jamie, Alice Oswald and Robin Robertson.
