Folklore in the Landscape
Exploration using Digital Technologies, Archives and Visual Arts
A doctoral training workshop exploring intangible relationships between people and Scotland’s landscape
The relationship between landscape, nature, heritage, archaeology, and Intangible Cultural Heritage is a growing area of research. However, there is a knowledge gap in this disciplinary intersection and further training is required in order to ensure the preservation of our unique heritage and that practitioners have the skills to do so.
Our interdisciplinary workshop will make this training accessible for SGSAH doctoral researchers working on topics related to cultural heritage, digital technologies, landscape and folklore. Through this we seek to address methods to engage with folkloric aspects of Scotland’s heritage and how they can be preserved and experienced.
Our workshop series will facilitate an understanding of the relationship between humans and their environment by creating access to forms of academic, professional and traditional knowledge to increase the value placed on the landscape and our natural environments.
