This paper discusses critical walking methodologies as a means to access specific forms of “earth-bound” knowledge in the complex political ecologies of the post-anthropocene. By illuminating more-than-representational methodologies, walking is tested as a way to make direct encounters with an entangled field of material, discourse and meaning. With a focus on the agency of the moving body and the moving landscape as coextensive participants in a world-making project. The paper will discuss strategies emerging from critical walking practice, which embed walking within theaesthetic fields and ‘environmental crossings’ (Gabrys, 2012) of climatic change and greater earth system collapse.
