Hi All


A reminder about our forthcoming event.


We have a nice A3 flyer too which I can send as an attachment if you’d like to post it up anywhere, or circulate further


For those of you far afield from Milton Keynes, UK we hope to be podcasting the discussion at the OpenSpace site:  http://www8.open.ac.uk/researchcentres/osrc/


But do have a look at the movie too if you get the chance ….


Many thanks, Nigel

Patrick Keiller’s film Robinson in Ruins (2010) and Doreen Massey’s essay Landscape/Space/Politics are two of the outcomes of a three-year AHRC-funded research collaboration `The Future of Landscape and the Moving Image’ involving Keiller, Massey, Patrick Wright and Matthew Flintham.  Taking its engagement with the UK landscape as a political intervention, the project `sets out to explore received ideas about mobility, belonging and displacement, and their relationship with landscape and images of landscape, in a context of economic and environmental change’
