Wed 18 November 2015,

Iain Sinclair, poet, writer and filmmaker, is one of our best writers on cities and places. He takes a walk every day. He talks about his recent work and what he has learned about cities and places and what this means for the future with Matthew Beaumont, author of Nightwalking: A Nocturnal History of London, the first instalment of an attempt to reconstruct a cultural history of the city at night, from the Middle Ages to the present. They are in discussion with Lauren Elkin (author of the forthcoming Flâneuse: The (Feminine) Art of Walking in Cities).
