Terra Infirma - Experimenting with geo-political practices
Angela Last’s ESRC Fellowship event at The Arts Catalyst
Gail Davies, Alan Ingram and Angela Last participated in a workshop entitled Terra Infirma - Experimenting with geo-political practices at The Arts Catalyst, London on 27 January.
The event was funded by the ESRC as part of Angela's Postdoctoral Fellowship at UCLGeography and brought together an interdisciplinary audience composed of geographers, artists, architects, scientists and international relations scholars.
Challenging the idea of geopolitics as a story of 'heroic men', the discussions focused on what other roles the 'geo' in 'geopolitics' could potentially play in relation to political practices.
Other speakers included: Nigel Clark (Open University), Kathryn Yusoff (Lancaster), Joanne Sharp (Glasgow), Nelly Ben Hayoun (artist) & Carina Fernley (Aberystwyth), Bronislaw Szerszynski (Lancaster) and Andrew Barry (Oxford).
