Karen Tobias-Green is a short story writer and Senior Lecturer in Language Development at Leeds College of Art. She is currently studying for a doctorate in Education at Sheffield Hallam University where her research methodology involves narrative inquiry.
Walking in Urbana, a series of 20 photographs, developed out of a conference trip to the 12th International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry at the University of Illinois (May 2015). As a lone pedestrian, on her way to the conference venue, Tobias-Green mapped her walk with a camera phone. The process was revelatory, the unfamiliar terrain was dissipated by the uncannily familiar American suburbia, enabling a reflection on lost stories and forgotten paths.
Opening night: Thursday 26 January 5-7pm
