Two groups will meet in person, one in Los Angeles and one in Philadelphia and we will connect via Skype with others joining remotely . There are two main goals set out for Vagabodism. One is to form a notable historical framework highlighting examples of vagabonding and/or transience during the last one hundred years. A few examples we will study include looking at modern peripatetic peoples, transient teens during the Great Depression, or the open-land experiment known as Morningstar during the 1960’s. The second goal is to highlight online resources and fellows peers’ personal travel accounts to aid in the organization of a travel experiement with fellow participants.
