William Bainbridge is a historical geographer interested in the history of landscape and cultural heritage. The contribution of Victorian travellers, explorers, artists and mountaineers to the invention and promotion of the Dolomite Mountains as a privileged tourist destination has been the argument of his PhD dissertation at Durham University (2015), to be published in its monograph form in the Landscape and Heritage Studies series of Amsterdam University Press. He has been postdoctoral fellow at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art in London and is now at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Advanced Studies in the Humanities. He consults on heritage matters internationally.
