This event is dedicated to Hoskins, and will introduce and examine his career and publications before 1955 and examine how landscape history has evolved and transformed since then. All the speakers have been closely associated with Hoskins and his work in one way or another. Malcolm Airs and Trevor Rowley were his postgraduate students at Oxford in the 1960s and their own careers have been heavily influenced by his ideas. Robert Peberdy is writing his definitive biography and Peter Jones will look back at the 1970s BBC series he produced with ‘Bill’, as he was affectionately known by the film crew. Clips from the television series will be shown during the day.
Please note: this event will close to enrolments at 23:59 BST on 25 October 2023.
