Listen to the performance text I recorded at Knepp Wildland Project, written and performed with Jamie Lorimer, Sofie Narbed, Jenny Swingler and Scott Twynholm.
The Six Wild Ways of the Oak is a creative response to the wild ways of the site, focussing on the different topologies through which we might conceive of the oak.
This project was funded as part of Jamie Lorimer’s British Academy Fellowship at the University of Oxford. Thanks to Penny Green, Tom Forward, Rina Quinlan and all the staff at Knepp.
My new article, co-written with Jamie Lorimer, has just been published. Read it in GeoHumanities.
Many thanks to Professor Baz Kershaw for his generous and constructive comments as we revised the essay, and sincere apologies to Baz for omitting acknowledgement of this contribution.
