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.
