Forthcoming in 2021
This series of books brings together writing on physical culture, philosophy, and landscape. Our activities involve just as much thinking as they do practice, so what is it we ‘think’ when we walk, explore, or visit? This series is designed to generate deeper reflection on our outdoor landscapes and looks at how we embody our identities in the things we do and the places we visit.
The authors in this series all pitch thinking into practice, bring the outdoors ‘inside’, and look to how landscape and leisure all combine to share cultural spaces of personal identity. In short, the books are all about how we physically inhabit our environments.
Whether we live in the city or the wilderness, these books share a common theme of how we make the places where we live and play our homes.
