Kay Anderson: “Mind over matter? Decentering the human in human geography”

Kay Anderson gave the Cultural Geographies lecture at the 2013 AAG conference offering a reading post-humanist work in human geography and pushing theorisations of what is or counts as ‘human’ in human geography. Anderson also points to the ways in which the ‘materialist turn’ intersects with culture-nature work within geography and the ways this has expanded the ontological remit of more-than-human geographies. Worth a watch, for those (like me) who missed the conference…

Also, worth thinking about how this work intersects with the ways in which interrogations of material politics are being pursued particularly in (British) human geography e.g. the Politics & Matter group and work on ‘immunitary geographies‘.
