RGS-IBG 2013: Ambiance and Atmospheres: Encountering New Material Frontiers

I’m very happy to be able to announce the details of the RGS-IBG sessions I am co-organizing with Peter Adey (RHUL) and Damien Masson (Cergy-Pontoise) this year. We have 3 sessions in the programme, 2 sponsored by the HPGRG and the 3rd independent. We had a great response to the call we sent out and it looks like it will be a great set of papers, mixing geographers and non-geographers, UK-based academics but also international contributions also…

I’m also presenting in one of Gail Davies, Jamie Lorimer, and Steve Hinchliffe’s sessions on ‘Immunitary Geographies’ (speaking about intersubjectivity and the work of Roberto Esposito) so it’s going to be a busy conference for me this year!

Full details of each of our Ambiance/atmospheres sessions are below.
