Lancaster Castle provides focus for lecture on importance of heritage sites

Teacher Insights

Organised by the Department of English Literature and Creative Writing at Lancaster University, an online lunchtime lecture on March 11 (1pm to 2pm) will look at how our physical heritage is crucial to the identity, resilience and renewal of our places.  In this free public ‘Castle Lecture’ (online), held in association with The Northern Premodern Seminar, Professor Catherine Clarke from the School of Advanced Study, University of London, will speak on ‘Sensing Place: Heritage, Renewal and New Public Realms’.

Her lecture will take as its starting-point the refurbishment work at Lancaster Castle, exploring the enormous significance of heritage sites for our communities, local economies and ‘sense of place’.  Professor Clarke will examine how a future, hybrid public realm, in which the material and virtual are interwoven, might enable us to experience historic places in new ways.  Professor Clarke is Director of the Centre for the History of People, Place and Community at the Institute of Historical Research, University of London.

A specialist in medieval culture and uses of the past, she has led major research projects in Chester, Swansea and across the March of Wales, and is currently involved in projects on place-making at Alderley Edge, and ‘Towns and the Cultural Economies of Recovery’.
