PhD defence ceremony

Asli Ozgen-Tuncer investigates the ways in which pedestrianism has informed, shaped or inspired cinematic aesthetics. She views walking as an everyday act of engagement with the dominant politics of space. She employs a cultural analysis of six film historical moments in order to study the history of cinema from the perspective of urban walking experience.
