Radical Walking: Protest, Dissent and Crossing Urban Boundaries
This one-day conference seeks to explore the relationship between walking and radicalism, from a range of perspectives, places, and periods. Walking allows radicals, whether self-acknowledged or not, to cross boundaries, challenge customs, redefine urban spaces, and physically express their opposition and beliefs.
People have taken steps toward effecting change throughout the centuries, moving through urban spaces in support of rights, opportunities, and societal innovation. Walking has allowed those who advocate for reform to express radical goals and argue for social, political, and religious change. Radicalism has been understood most commonly in reference to the British Liberal Party's stance on the reform of society and Parliament in the eighteenth-century. But, in recent years, scholars have also applied the term much more widely, from causes as diverse as peasant protests in medieval Japan, to more recent quests for the securing of civil rights. Walking allows radicals, whether self-acknowledged or not, to cross boundaries, challenge customs, redefine urban spaces, and physically express their opposition and beliefs.
