Session abstract Historical geographers have long engaged with art practices and increasingly seek to explore new participatory, active and dialogic models of knowledge co-production and collaboration. In this session we aim to highlight some on-going artist and geographer/scientist collaborations and provide a forum for the discussion of: the nature of collaboration and 'participation'; approaches to place, representation and environmental change; experimental fieldwork and the research process; the role of history and the geographical/ecological imagination; new forms of temporal, sonic and visual engagement; the challenges and possibilities of creative co-production; and, related prospects for historical geography 'at large'. In the first session collaborative teams will present current research projects situated within Manitoulin Island (Canada), Alice Holt experimental forest (England), the city of Calgary (Canada), and Scottish coastal environments. The themes raised will then be explored further in the roundtable with artists and historical geographers involved in researching and representing the visual and sonic ecologies of places and the modes of listening, visualising, recording, and presenting dynamic environmental phenomena. There is an associated study visit to the Natural History Museum on Wednesday 8th July.
