My contribution is entitled: Vulgar geographies? Popular cultural geographies and technology.
There is a fantastic and diverse range of papers in the issue and I heartily recommend exploring it. Not least the editorial by Nadia Bartolini, Parvati Raghuram & George Revill. I would like to thank them, again, for inviting me to be part of such a rich conversation.
Of course, all of these provocations follow in the wake of the departure of one of, if not, the most provocative and vital influencers of geographical thought – Doreen Massey, for whom the annual event these papers stem from is named. I am confident that all of the author’s in this theme issue took inspiration from Doreen’s work. fitting then that in the same issue is Rob Kitchin’s excellent obituary.
A few articles from the theme issue that stand out for me are:
Isla Forsyth’s More-than-human warfare
