This First Year Seminar examines the practice of walking from a variety of perspectives—historical, social, political, philosophical, spiritual and poetic. Our readings will cover trekking, marches (civil rights, peace and death marches), pilgrimages, walking meditation, walkabouts, walkable cities, as well as literary representations of walking. The goal of the class is to strengthen writing skills and we will use the readings as guides for persuasive, creative and inspiring writing. Class activities include journaling, essay writing, blogging, walking, mapping, designing walking tours, and interviews. Readings include work by Wordsworth, Thoreau, Franz Hessel, Walter Benjamin, Virginia Woolf, Elie Wiesel, Bruce Chatwin, Jane Jacobs, Thich Nhat Hanh, Richard Long, Rebecca Solnit.
