Mapping the Borders (talks)

18 November, 2017, 2:00 pm - 5:30 pm


An afternoon of talks by academics and artists, whose work brings new perspectives to the Scottish Borders.

Pop-up talks

Map curator Chris Fleet from the National Library of Scotland will take us through time and space with the wonderful collection of maps of the Scottish Borders in its collection.

Professor Ysanne Holt will talk about the visual and material culture of the Anglo-Scottish borderland space of common resources, ecologies, skills and patterns of existence.

Inge Panneels is a Borders based artist and will give an overview of artists who ‘map the borders’. You can see her work can be seen in the corresponding exhibition in Island Street during the Being Human festival week.

Professor Mike Collier leads the W.A.L.K (Walking, Art, Knowledge and Landscape) at the University of Sunderland and will discuss the notion of walking (the border) as an artistic practice.

Dr Andrew Richardson will discuss the digital mapping of the ‘lost and found’ literary clues which describe the landscape of the Scottish Borders.

Artists Clare Money, Zoe Childerley, Alec Finlay and John Wallace will talk about their work.

The acclaimed film Lawes of the Marshes by artist Katie Davies will also be screened.
