Event Details

I am a cultural geographer and emeritus professor of Environmental Humanities. I have written a lot of things about tides and intertidal places such as estuaries.

I grew up by the Severn Estuary and I run a blog called Tidal Cultures. This stems from a previous project conducted with Bettina Van Hoven of Groningen University, which studied cultural and creative aspects of the Severn Estuary and the Wadden Sea. There is a lot of tidal info on the blog. This includes a long list of books about tides. It also includes a ‘poetic glossary’ of various historic, local and other words relating to tides. Through the blog I am now collaborating with the Arizona University based artist and scholar Heather Green. She is a fabulous artist who has worked on the tidal area Bahía Adair/Bahía La Cholla—Sonora, Mexico.

We are working on joint projects on the Bahia and the Severn Estuary. See Tidal Timespace: Imprints & Palimpsests

With regard to the Exe, I am drawn to all thing tides, so have photographed the Exe Estuary a few times as I have passed it on the train when visiting Plymouth University. I will put a link to the High Water project on the news page of my blog. I would love to be involved in some way. I could share photos, maybe video, or say about the tidal glossary, or stuff about the Severn Estuary where i grew up or the project I am doing with Heather Green
