Mapping the Borders: Pushing Boundaries (Walk 2)
19th November, 2pm-4pm
As part of the UK wide Being Human festival, Mapping the Borders is a week long event taking place in the Scottish Borders. On Sunday 19th of November 2017, a day of activity will take place in the Borders town of Jedburgh.
There will be two different, complimentary walks led by Prof Mike Collier and naturalist Keith Bowey, at 10am and 2pm respectively.
This walk led by naturalist Keith Bowey and Prof Mike Collier from University of Sunderland, is an ongoing conversation on the concept of borderlands’. Edgelands are typically the most bio diverse and this walk will explore the ‘more than human’ perspective of borderlands. This walk will include the Hutton Unconformity at Inchbonny and loop south from Jedburgh.
For the walks we recommend you wear strong footwear and bring waterproofs. We will be walking up to 4km over undulating paths/tracks and encountering some muddy sections, stiles, gates and flights of countryside steps.
Mapping The Borders is part of the Being Human Festival 2017. Being Human is led by the University of London School of Advanced Studies, in partnership with the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the British Academy. Mapping the Borders will be a partnership between the University of Sunderland, Northumbria University, the National Library of Scotland and CABN, Live Borders.
