Geography of Walking

Type: Paper
Sponsor Groups:
Organizers: Tyra Olstad, James Mills
Chairs: James Mills


In an era when many people move via bicycle, car, bus, train, or airplane, and when screens and smartphones mediate our firsthand experience of the world and compress our conceptions of time and space, there’s much to be said for walking—for self-powered, slow-paced, directly-sensed movement through the world. This session seeks to explore the geography of walking from a variety of perspectives, including but not limited to: urban planning, transportation, economics, sustainability, land management, health and leisure, travel and tourism, philosophy, psychology, and art and literature.
