Fourth World Congress of Psychogeography 2021 – ‘Playing Out’

Event details

03 - 5 Sep, 2021
Pay as You Feel

The 4WCoP 2021 Congress is happening! We have pulled out all the stops, and we are hoping to pull together a full programme – mostly online, but including some physical events in Huddersfield and elsewhere, Covid restrictions permitting.

This year’s theme is ‘Playing Out’. Please see our website for details about the Call for Proposals 2021. We are seeking outline ideas for events – to be received by 17.00 BST on Saturday 1st May 2021, submitted by email to [email protected].

We hope that like last year, online, more people will be able to attend, joining from across the world. Participants came from Brazil, Japan, Australia and many other countries. People who have faced physical barriers to getting involved in past years were also able to join from the comfort of their own homes; and to our delight, many more women joined us last year. Clearly, an online congress is more inclusive for many of us.

We look forward to hearing from you.

‘Don’t walk to your tune, walk carefully’

2022-07-19 18:00

Online

Indian city dweller Samprati Pani draws on her walking practices as an anthropologist interested in the making of public places in the city. Through an ethnography of walking practices performed in the bazaars of Delhi, the talk will illustrate how walking in the bazaar, even for a solitary walker, is a social activity because its rhythm and pace is continuously modulated in relation to others and the materiality of the place.
