This special issue comes out of Traversing the Field: An Interdisciplinary Conference on Walking in Scottish Landscapes, held at the University of Dundee on 30 April 2016. With a short extract from Thomas A. Clark’s In Praise of Walking as prompt and provocation, the call for papers invited participants to consider links between landscape, walking and thinking, and to deconstruct as well as celebrate its application in their respective disciplines. On the day, walking was revealed to have the potential to unlock new perspectives across disciplines, history borrowing methodologies from archaeology, ethnography from mental health care, philosophy from dance, and so on. Evidently, many speakers had found themselves literally crossing fields in order to cross disciplinary fields.
