On Walking conference

You’ve got about a week to submit an abstract for the conference On Walking held on 28/29 June at the University of Sunderland by the W.A.L.K. research group – the deadline is 15 March. Its coverage will cross disciplines, from art to literature to geography and beyond. The call for papers says that ‘Papers that consider any aspect addressed in the titular acronym of the research group (walking, art, landskip (/landscape), and knowledge) will be considered, as will theoretical views of walking and not-walking, writing on specific walking experiences, and writing on the links between walking and memorialisation, walking and artistic expression / creation, and walking and literature.’ The keynote speaker is the anthropologist Tim Ingold, whose extensive work on landscape and walking has been hugely influential in recent years, including on, er, me.
