British Summer Time is a series of short sunrise walks in consideration of the time change. In the week leading up to clocks going back, I will be walking from 15 minutes before sunrise until 15 minutes after. I invite you to join me as I cling to the last vestige of summer. You can also follow the project via the British Summer Time blog.

1-3 November 2019 ︎
Debbie Kent and I will be presenting ‘These Roads Aren’t Made for Walking: Blake and Debbie play the A-Game’ at the University of Plymouth’s Walking’s New Movements conference, organised by Hellen Billinghurst, Claire Hind and Phil Smith.

The Former Fresnan’s not-quite annual Boxing Day Tour returns for a third round. Check my interview with Donald Munro from 2015 for a refresher! Or for a more in-depth perspective, see my article in Livingmaps Review. More details TBA.
16 January 2020 ︎
I am editing a special issue of Streetnotes with Claudia Brazzale, focused on Walking in the Digital City. Streetnotes is apeer-reviewed biannual journal for the interdisciplinary study of the city, its lifeways and social relations, with a special concern for the cultural and aesthetic forms that arise through its traffic. We are looking for submissions, including creative responses, artists pages, walking scores, academic articles, and other forms, that address the relationship between urban walking and digital tools. 

Deadline 16 Jan. 2020. Find the full CFP here.
