Dear friends and fellow walking artists
I hope this CFP is of interest. Please feel free to share this invitation, and accept the usual mumbles about cross posting. It would be wonderful to have some walking artists sharing their work
Very best wishes
Beyond The Pedestrian: Walking in Research, Theory, Practice and Performance
26th July 2018 Dept of Geography and Planning, The University of Liverpool
Keynote Speaker: Professor Dee Heddon, University of Glasgow
A one-day interdisciplinary event focused on walking research, practice and culture. Our definition of walking is welcoming to all kinds of bodies and includes orthotics, sticks, wheels and other assistive technologies. This symposium is open to students, academics and anyone else interested in exploring the more than pedestrian. We invite proposals for 20 minute paper presentations, but are also open to creative and innovative methods. We are also interested in facilitating a small number of walks. Subjects covered may include, but are not limited to:
Walking interviews and other pedestrian research tools
Creative walking, walking art and pedestrian performance
Past, present and future psychogeographies
Walking to critically engage with and understand our environment
Walking as a political, activist or community building tool
Ethical conflicts, barriers, issues and debates around walking research
Access, participation and the privilege of walking as choice
Research into, and around, pedestrian policy, planning and promotion
Walking across and between academic disciplines
Walking for leisure, education, health, tourism or exploration
This event will be free to attend thanks to support from the Power, Space and Cultural Change Research Group.
