This fellowship involves a series of events and activities, including a public workshop, an academic symposium and an artist commission. Further details will be posted here as they are finalised.
10th May 2019: Solway Romanticisms at the University of Glasgow. This one-day, interdisciplinary symposium invited new perspectives on the imaginative geography of the Solway Firth. Pairing scholars working on both sides of the Solway, it addressed questions of similarity and dissimilarity, of parochialism and glocalism, while putting pressure on a central conundrum at the heart of the spatial humanities: how and when does text explain place?
