Walking Places : Postcard from the Research Edge by Anita Strasser

The symposium I co-organised in January 2019 in Lisbon called Walking Places, seems long ago for many reasons!  I, Alex Rhys-Taylor and Emma Jackson were speakers among Portuguese academics and the symposium was supported by the Centre for Urban and Community Research at Goldsmiths, University of London.   

We have now published the conference proceedings, including my article ‘The Stone Sea: a walk through mountain research’ – a piece that narrates my experience of mountaineering as sociological practice. Along with it is the article ‘Walking, Cadence and Urban Rhythms’ by Alex Rhys-Taylor who gave the keynote at the symposium, and the article ‘Flâneuse Fragments: Towards a critical and situated feminist approach to walking in the city’ written by Emma Jackson. The e-book can be downloaded here for free:  https://www.dinamiacet.iscte-iul.pt/post/ebook-walking-places
