Om emnet

In this course we will explore practices of walking as a way of knowing and engaging with the city. The overall aim will be to explore what kind of insights practices of walking can produce and how these might add to more established forms of knowing within architecture, landscape architecture and urbanism. The theoretical component of the course will consist of readings on the history of walking, as well as introduction to tools and methods for recording and documenting explorative practices of urban walking. The more practical component of the course will consist of a set of explorative urban walking sessions combined with testing out ways of recording and documentation.

Læringsutbytte

Knowledge: The students will gain knowledge about the city through exploring practices of urban walking.

Skills: The students will learn to use tools and methods for recording and documenting explorative practices of urban walking.

Competence: The students will acquire competence that prepare them, based on their own field work, for writing a final discursive paper on the topic of how the city can be explored through walking.

Praktisk organisering og arbeidsmåter

The course will be organized as a combination of weekly seminars (first part of the day) and more concrete fieldwork in terms of walking sessions in different parts of Oslo (second part of the day). The weekly seminars will consist of series of lectures, discussions of (weekly) readings, and reports on ongoing fieldwork. The more concrete fieldwork sessions will be organized both as collective events, group work and individual work. In the last part of the semester the students will write up an essay based on their fieldwork into practices of urban walking.

Pensum

The curriculum consists of a selection of articles that will be avilable on Moodle from the beginning of the semester.
