Cities on the move: Navigating urban life |

Excerpt from Caroline Knowles
A closer look at the 'journeys' undertaken by people and goods around the globe can provide useful analytical and imaginative insights into an understanding of how urban realities are continuously constructed. Journeys, it is argued, can provide powerful intersections from which to observe, ask questions and act. The idea that city dwellers speak the city through their actions (Darroch, 1) turns walking/riding/driving into un-verbalised but articulated through movement, narratives of space-connecting everyday life. The idea that people walk stories they are unable (or unwilling) to verbalise so that walking is a (silent) social narrative is a point I have developed more fully elsewhere (Knowles, 2; Knowles and Harper, 3). Caroline Knowles is the Director of the Centre for Urban and Community Research and Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London. She is co-author of Hong Kong: Migrant Lives, Landscapes and Journeys (2009) as well as other books and academic papers concerned with race, space, visuality and biography.
