Green Social Prescribing

This project uses ethnographic methods to explore green social prescribing – an initiative that draws on the notion that taking part in activities in ‘nature’ is restorative and refers patients into ‘green’ activities, including walking and gardening.

Kinaesthetic Modernism

Drawing on methodologies from literary criticism, cultural history, and performance studies, combining close reading with archival research in literary and dance collections, this project examines how understandings of kinaesthesia, the sense of movement, shaped modernist literary cultures in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries

Movement and Care

In partnership with a walking buddy scheme, Move Mates, this co-produced research will bring together theoretical knowledge of the links between moving bodies and care with Move Mates’ aims and processes around creating mutually beneficial ‘pairings’ of walkers.

Weathered Lives

Everyday weather shapes what we see, feel, say, where we go, and what we do when we get there. Using go-along methods and creative practice (poetry workshops), this transdisciplinary programme of work seeks to understand how we live and move well with weather in the context of a changing climate.
