Walking Inside Out : A psychogeographic symposium & book launch
Thu 15 October 2015, 14:00 – 18:00 BST
This special event brings together contributors to "Walking Inside Out: Contemporary British Psychogeography" (Tina Richardson, ed, Rowman and Littlefield International, 2015). Walking Inside Out represents the first attempt to merge the work of literary, academic and artist practitioners to critically explore the state of psychogeography today. It discusses a range of critical and creative walking practices, and how they can be used to investigate everyday life and urban phenomena.
The symposium will include presentations from:
Roy Bayfield (Edge Hill University)
Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam University)
Alexander Bridger (University of Huddersfield)
Andrea Capstick (University of Bradford)
Gareth Rees (author)
Tina Richardson (independent scholar, editor)
Morag Rose (University of Sheffield)
Phil Wood (author)
Questions and debate from participants will be very welcome. We want to celebrate the diversity, and discuss the controversies, that inform psychogeography today.
The event will conclude with a wine reception sponsored by Rowman and Littlefield International, and is supported by The Department of Urban Studies and Planning at The University of Sheffield.
Attendance is free but space is limited so booking is essential.
