Experiencing the city by walking


Canella, C (2011). Experiencing the city by walking. Basel: Mobile Culture Studies.

Abstract

In urban space, the movement of walking stands for realising the dynamic of culture as an everyday process. The paper relates to the relevant question about this process in the field of Cultural Studies by exploring in an empirical qualitative way how three women experience the city of Zurich by their everyday walking. The presented findings are based on fieldwork. Two categories analytically extracted from the empirical data are focused on, namely: "experiences and functions of walking" and "denotation and description of the routes covered by walking".
