Travel has not always been as easy and comfortable as we know it and international travel is one of the problems facing us in this ecological crisis. This series of online discussions will consider travel critically, aesthetically and creatively. The discussions examine how people historically and geographically have satisfied their thirst to visit distant landscapes old and new. In addition, taking its cue from David Lowenthal’s The Past is a Foreign Country, some of the presentations take us on a tour to our local histories showing what we can find when looking deeper into our past.

This event will consist of three sessions:

  • 10:30-12:00 Session 1: Alternative ways of travelling
  • 13:00-14:30 Session 2: Staying local
  • 18:00-19:30 Session 3: Artists staying at home

Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
