Honorary Associate Professor Simon Roberts publishes new monograph

Honorary Associate Professor Simon Roberts has published his new monograph, Merrie Albion: Landscape Studies of a Small Island.

Merrie Albion ranges across several of his projects from the last decade, projects that have explored not only our leisure landscape but also our social and political landscape. The book registers a distinct shift in approach, and tone, from his work in We English. Roberts has exchanged the element of discovery and revelation evident in his earlier travels through England, for a form of 'reporting', in which he responds to subjects and places that are already firmly positioned within the public consciousness – defining locations in our recent national story.

The book includes an essay by David Matless, Professor of Cultural Geography.

Find out more about the book on his website.
