Workshop follow-up


Many thanks to all those who participated in the two day Politics and Matter Workshop last December in Bristol. It was great to introduce the Politics and Matter research cluster to an audience and think through some of our key concerns as a group with others broadly affiliated with the new materialist turn.



Some inspiring conversations were generated around the themes of ‘concepts’, ‘techniques’ and ‘ethics/aesthetics’ that queried, amongst many things, practices of writing and presenting research, the difficulties of practicing more-than-human methodologies, and the application of different theoretical perspectives. Throughout the workshop we were presented with the diverse ways in which people are using and exploring these themes and which indicate the breadth and magnitude of new materialisms in contemporary geography.


The discussions opened up a number of stimulating problematics that we plan to develop with some future collaborations. Watch this space…
