‘Writing Place: Creative-Critical Conversations’ is a series of six public events organised by the new Centre for Place Writing. In each event, a Manchester Met researcher will be paired with an artist or academic from outside the University to introduce their work and to discuss the relationship between creative and critical approaches to place. Ideas and issues that will be explored during the series include the power and problems of mapping, the representation of post-industrial geographies, and the relationship between writing and music.
The second event in the ‘Writing Place: Creative-Critical Conversations’ series will be held on Thursday, 6 December and will focus on ‘Mapping’. Dr Les Roberts (Senior Lecturer in Cultural & Media Studies, University of Liverpool) will introduce his new publication Spatial Anthropology: Excursions in Liminal Space: a book that explores a range of spatial methods for thinking about sites across north-west England. Les will be joined by Dr Tina Richardson (Senior Lecturer, Manchester Fashion Institute, Manchester Metropolitan University) who will reflect on the psychogeographic practices brought together in Walking Inside Out: Contemporary British Psychogeography.
