Professor David Higgins and Dr Pippa Marland present the Land Lines project which explored British nature writing from the late eighteenth century to the present day.

A collaboration between researchers from the Universities of Leeds, Sussex and St Andrews, Land Lines involved public events such as a museum exhibition, public talks, school visits, and a family-fun day.

This talk will explore the process and findings of the project and its heightened relevance as the British public return to nature during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Land Lines was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and led by the School of English at Leeds.

This event takes place as part of the Meet the Researchers: Cultural Connections webinar series.
