Students participate in seminar on psychogeography

Students enrolled on Paris School module The Verbal and the Visual: Dialogues between Literature, Film, and Art spent Friday afternoon learning about and participating in their own experiment in psychogeography. Under the direction of guest seminar leader and author Professor Vybarr Cregan-Reid, University of Kent students combed the streets of Paris in their bare feet in order to explore their urban environment from an unfamiliar (and sometimes uncomfortable!) perspective. Psychogeography was first made popular as a concept in France in the 1950s, notably by philosopher and artist Guy Debord.
