Making the ordinary extraordinary: collaborative wayfaring and creating writing

Louise Barrett, David Manderson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This co-authored article investigates the idea of wayfaring across boundaries and specifically walking as a shared act of understanding, exploration, pleasure and resistance. The psychogeographic traditions of the city and the rural landscape are investigated, scientific experiments into creativity and walking are evaluated, and walking as a device in contemporary fiction considered. The research was undertaken as part of a cross-Faculty project set up to explore the impact of creativity on the curriculum.
