Changing Perceptions of a Cultural Landscape by Danny Rurlander on Monday 10th May 2021
Part of the Changing Perspectives of a Cultural Landscape talk series, author Danny Rurlander follows in the footsteps of much-loved children’s authors who have been inspired by the spectacular landscape of the English Lake District - most famously Beatrix Potter (1866 – 1943), Arthur Ransome (1884 – 1967) - and continues the tradition of inventive children having epic adventures in the Lakeland wilds.
In this talk and in the context of “Changing perceptions of a cultural landscape”, Danny focuses on three areas: the influences and inspiration behind the story, especially with regard to the rich heritage of children’s literature inspired by the landscape and geography of the Lake District; the place that the setting of the northern end of Lake Windermere and surrounding fells and rivers plays in the book; and the way in which the very new technology of UAV’s (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) offered new perspectives on the landscape in the context of a fast-paced thriller for children.
This talk will premiere at the University of Cumbria YouTube Channel as a FREE public event on Mon 10th of May at 6.30pm. Register now to receive the direct link to the talk via email.
