About this book

This book explores the moving qualities of mountains by utilising theories, ideas and processes which contribute to a larger understanding of these geological forms. In highlighting the fluid attributes of mountains the authors offer an alternative to the traditional approach of the sciences and the humanities, which address mountains as static geological or geographical features. The essays in this collection posit that movement impacts the relationship between society and mountains – travelling landscape objects, constructing design and artistic translations, climbing and experiencing changing atmospheres and the different ways of seeing from mountain peaks – and that physical, intellectual and spiritual motion is integral to their understanding. This innovative collection will be of great interest to scholars of geography, art, architecture, history, theology and philosophy.

Reviews

“Mountains, Mobilities and Movement brings together scholars, arts practitioners, and other professionals to help readers see mountains in new ways. The picture on the cover is of the Matterhorn, an iconic, unmistakable mountain steeped in mountaineering history. If any mountain is unmovable, unchangeable in readers’ minds, it is this one. It is a testament to the innovation of this collection of essays that, for some readers, the Matterhorn may now appear moveable.” (Katherine E. Ledford, Mountain Research and Development, Vol. 38 (2), May, 2018)
