Dear Walking Artist friends

I am convening a panel at the RC21 Conference in Leeds this September, and I hope the call for papers is of interest to at least some of you

More Than Pedestrian: Psychogeography, Creative Walking and Spatial Justice

It is sixty years since Debord wrote The Theory of The Dérive, and psychogeography has evolved in many different artistic, activist and academic directions, often at an apparent loss of its political intentions. However many recent practitioners have been using walking as way to interrogate, destabilise and affectively remap space. Many now recognise that there is an emerging “new psychogeography” identified by Richardson (2015) as being, amongst other things, heterogeneous, critical, strategic, and somatic. This richness and diversity is embodied in members of the Walking Artists Network. They exhibit a wealth of contemporary creative walking, much of which is at least in part inspired by psychogeography. This suggests the dérive has the potential to transform the everyday, to illuminate and challenge narratives of privatisation, commodification and securitisation of space, and navigate increasingly blurred boundaries between public/private. This session aims to explore what the theory and practice of psychogeography and creative walking can offer Urban Studies.

This call is for panellists offering papers on the following areas of walking practice and psychogeography:

•	How psychogeography and creative walking practices can engage with and interrogate the urban environment
•	New interpretations of Situtationist ideas
•	Innovations, issues and debates around creative walking methodologies
•	Issues of urban spatial injustice highlighted via imaginary, temporary and mobile spaces
•	Activist, community and radical mapping practices

The presentations will be followed by a roundtable discussion and questions from the audience. Given the interdisciplinary nature of the subject we are very open to presenters who have audio visual material or unconventional presentation methods.

Please send abstracts (approximately  250 words) to both Morag Rose, The University of Sheffield [log in to unmask] and the conference organisers [log in to unmask] Deadline 10th March 2017

More about the conference here: https://rc21leeds2017.wordpress.com/ and please do contact me if you have any questions or comments.

My very best wishes

Morag Rose
