Landscapes of Detectorists

Innes M. Keighren (Editor), Joanne Norcup (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Landscapes of Detectorists considers the programme’s engagement with landscape, its ecological resonances, and its attention to place and identity. The book offers four distinct geographical readings of Detectorists: Innes M. Keighren attends to the sensory, technological, and emotional interpretation of landscape; Isla Forsyth examines the relationship between objects, memory, and place; the significance of verticality, the aerial, and groundedness is discussed by Andrew Harris; and Joanne Norcup explores the contested interconnections of gender, expertise, and knowledge making. The collection is bookended by reflections on the creative processes and decisions that supported the journey of Detectorists from script to screen: in a foreword written by its writer-director, Mackenzie Crook, and in an afterword written by its originating producer, Adam Tandy.
