Our knowledge of the world is entirely dependent on our bodies. This intertwining of bodies and worlds led Robyn Longhurst (1994) to describe the body as “the geography closest in”. A range of technologies have become available that allow us to investigate embodiment in novel ways: smartphone health monitoring and wearables; body-worn cameras; analysis of social media and other sources of open data. This module will combine intensive cultural geography theory with practical field-based experiments. The lectures will be accompanied by workshop sessions: initially learning and deploying different field methods; followed by sessions on project design. These sessions will include non-assessed presentations about the module fieldwork to provide ongoing formative feedback. The final assessment will be a report based on an original project investigating a topical issue in urban embodiment. Students will design their own projects responding to the theories and techniques taught on the module.
