Pathways: Exploring the Routes of a Movement Heritage

A team of us have written a chapter in a new book about work we are carrying out on foot in Cornwall. The volume’s objectives include: 

  • Formulate an expansion of the landscape heritage through one of its most defining practices, movement by foot. This heritage is physical in the shape of paths, trails and effects on vegetation, but it is also a local memory landscape or life world with great significance, and it is increasingly digital as it appears in computer games and mobile images.
  • Engage in dialogue around several cases in different regions that show how trails and paths can be, and have been, a resource in and for the heritage sector and for sustainable landscape management
  • Analyse how this movement heritage is articulated, and what type of historical, literary, and mediated accounts that are used in the process. It will consist of three sections, tied together through the introduction and the concluding chapter by the editors.
It’s an anthology, edited by Daniel Svensson, Katarina Saltzman and Sverker Sörlin with a foreword by Tim Ingold.
