Sheffield symposium, October 15th

Dear friends, colleagues and fellow wanderers

I am delighted to invite you to a Psychogeographical Symposium in Sheffield on October 15th 2015  to celebrate the launch of “Walking Inside Out: Contemporary British Psychogeography.”
I’m thrilled so many contributors will be there and I'm especially pleased this is happening in Sheffield as the book is dedicated to Victoria Henshaw whose work is featured.

Full details are as follows:
This special event brings together contributors to "Walking Inside Out: Contemporary British Psychogeography" (Tina Richardson, ed, Rowman and Littlefield International, 2015). Walking Inside Out represents the first attempt to merge the work of literary, academic and artist practitioners to critically explore the state of psychogeography today. It discusses a range of critical and creative walking practices, and how they can be used to investigate everyday life and urban phenomena.
The symposium will include presentations from:
Luke Bennett (Sheffield Hallam University)
Alexander Bridger (University of Huddersfield)
Andrea Capstick (University of Bradford)
Gareth Rees (author)
Tina Richardson (independent scholar, editor)
Morag Rose (University of Sheffield)
Phil Wood (author)

Questions and debate from participants will be very welcome. We want to celebrate the diversity, and discuss the controversies, that inform psychogeography today.

The event will conclude with a wine reception sponsored by Rowman and Littlefield International, and is supported by The Department of Urban Studies and Planning at The University of Sheffield.
Tickets are free but places are limited – please book here to reserve your place:

I really hope you will be able to make it, and my thanks to everyone who has supported the organisation of this event. If you need any more information please don't hesitate to contact. Please feel free to forward this to anyone who may be interested 

My very best wishes
