Final Keynote

James Attlee – ‘Isolarion: Walking the Cowley Road’

James Attlee concludes the workshop’s formal presentations with a reflection on how the Cowley Road in East Oxford has changed in the years that have passed since he wrote his non-fictional, psychogeographical exploration of it, and that was published as Isolarion: A Different Oxford Journey in 2009. He offers a series of thoughtful anecdotes that document the kinds of gentrification that have happened in the area at an astonishing pace in recent years.
