Location: Goldsmiths, London: The event will take place primarily outside in Southeast London
Deadline for walk proposals is: April 30th 2019, 17.00 BST. Decisions will be communicated in late June 2019.
*This conference will be free to attend. Registration will open for the conference once decisions on walk proposals have been communicated.
Alongside a series of guided sociological walks, exploring topics including the histories of anti-racist struggle and sound system cultures and an exploration of the relationship between material infrastructures and the urban form, we are also open for proposals for different short walks. Organisers are particularly keen for submissions of more experimental walks, for example, those that might involve, but are not limited to: situationist walking practices, taking a transect, walking as theorising, walks that follow a theme, sensory walking. If you would like to submit a proposal to facilitate a walk, please submit a title, rationale, route (if known) and assessment of accessibility via this submission site.
• Walks will need to take place in the environs of Southeast London near theconference base of Goldsmiths (https://www.gold.ac.uk/find-us/)
• Walks should last two hours, including walking time from conference base(Goldsmiths) and back again. Please also consider mobility issues. If the route is known beforehand and involves hills or long staircases, please state this on the proposal form. We hope to run one accessible walk at all times and particularly wish to receive submissions which reflect this.
• Walks should not bypass into prohibited land and/or properties and shouldtake place in public areas or venues that do not incur a charge to delegates.
The call for walk proposals is open to all career stages including PhD researchers.
*Deadline for walk proposals is: April 30th 2019, 17.00 BST. Please note we cannot accept late proposals.
Registration for the conference will open in July once walk proposal decisions are communicated.
