  • The future’s impossible disciplines

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Keyvan Allahyari
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I want to stay with three questions: where exactly are we talking about when we are talking about the geographies of the impossible' Is speculative method necessarily transformative' What happens when we base our vision for future research on seeking new territory rather than examining regimes of production of our own geographical knowledge'

      Authors: AbdouMaliq Simone, Dominique Somda, Giulia Torino, Miya Irawati, Niranjana Ramesh, Nitin Bathla, Rodrigo Castriota, Simone Vegliò, Tanya Chandra
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Across the different vernaculars of the world's urban majorities, there is renewed bewilderment as to what is going on in the cities in which they reside and frequently self-build. Prices are unaffordable and they are either pushed out or strongly lured away from central locations. Work is increasingly temporary, if available at all, and there is often just too much labour involved to keep lives viably in place. Not only do they look for affordability and new opportunities in increasingly distant suburbs and hinterlands, but for orientations, for ways of reading where things are heading, increasingly hedging their bets across multiple locations and affiliations. Coming together to write this piece from our own multiple orientations, we are eight researchers who, over the past year, joined to consider how variegated trajectories of expansion unsettle the current logic of city-making. We have used the notion of extensions as a way of thinking about operating in the middle of things, as both a reflection of and a way of dealing with this unsettling. An unsettling that disrupts clear designations of points of departure and arrival, movement and settlement, centre and periphery, and time and space.

  • Articulating conjunctural analysis

      Authors: Jamie Peck
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In dialogue with responses to my article on the emergent practice of conjunctural methodologies, I pick up the question of collaboration and the shared challenges of developing, in a deliberative and reflexive manner, this demanding approach to problem specification, research design, and contextual theorizing. Although explicit engagement with conjunctural methodologies is a relatively recent phenomenon, its connections and resonances with geographical research practice run deeper. This means that there is much for geographers to give as well as to gain from the interdisciplinary conversation around conjunctural analysis.

      Authors: Kafui Attoh, Craig Dalton, Emma Fraser, Jim Thatcher, Jeremy Crampton
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Speculative thinking has made its mark in several disciplines and literary genres, including continental philosophy, predictive analytics, and science (or speculative) fiction. What might speculation look like through a geographical lens' And how would such thinking in a distinctly geographical register build on and possibly place into a wider context work on utopias, alternative communities, game worldscapes, and speculative futures' This conversation brings together four geographers who have worked across these topics to help examine the relations between speculative geographies.

  • For granular geographies: Conceptual spaces of anatropism and land
           reclamation in Singapore

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: John Lowe
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The call for granular geographies represents an interesting intervention in the nexus between old and new materialisms in human geography. While there is a need to look beyond reclamation as volumetric expansion of territory, this commentary discusses how we can think about locating granular geographies in the complex nexus between the conceptual spaces of the ‘tropics’ and ‘temperate.’ This is in addition to theorizing how a singular grain of sand is capable of militarizing and gendering the Southeast Asian island state.

  • Towards ‘a progressive sense of thick time’ and the future of
           geographical thinking

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Debangana Bose
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I reflect on a ‘nascent temporal turn’ in geography and its future possibilities. I draw on and extend Kitchin's (2023) concept of ‘a progressive sense of time’ by juxtaposing it with other temporal frameworks such as ‘thick time’ (Datta, 2022) as well as practices of temporal politics such as ‘relational remembering’ (Hunfeld, 2022) and ‘anticipatory action’ (Anderson, 2010). I also draw upon the temporal politics of labour among the Gorkhas, an ethno-racial community in Darjeeling, a colonial hill station in India. I argue and show that the Gorkhas connect their resistance against external platforms such as ride-hailing and food delivery platforms with their longstanding subnationalist struggles for a separate state to reverse past colonial injustices and reconfigure their future. I reflect on how the temporal politics of labour among Gorkhas and the concept of a ‘progressive sense of thick time’ not only inform each other but also open up future pathways for geographical thinking and praxis.

  • Planetary rural geographies: Towards a research agenda

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Chi-Mao Wang, Damian Maye, Michael Woods
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This author reply responds to the commentaries on our article, ‘Planetary rural geographies’, exploring intersections with neo-Marxist political economy, post-colonialism, and digital geographies. The critiques raise questions about the portrayal of rural spaces as sources of planetary crises. We emphasize the intention of the planetary rural geographies framework to avoid a simplistic rural – urban dichotomy and argue for a nuanced understanding of planetary crises. Our response delves into the role of agency in a neoliberal capitalist context, incorporating post-humanist perspectives. It also examines the complex relationship between rural populism, conflicts, and planetary crises. Planetary rural geographies seek to integrate diverse perspectives as a research agenda, acknowledging the need for empirical tools to translate theoretical insights into meaningful interventions for just, equitable transitions.

      In response to a variety of open questions and concerns raised by the set of commentaries on Prasad et al., this response offers clarifications and a way forward about, first, the need to re-conceptualise informality with smart urbanism and, second, the implications of understanding the interrelationship between informality and smart urbanism through traditional knowledge in the broader field of urban studies.

      Authors: Jonathan Pugh
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary engages Bodden's (2023) ‘Working through our differences’ to draw out how contemporary frameworks of reasoning in human geography extend the limits of ‘thinkability’, expanding the world, of the modern subject. In response, I offer ‘Abyssal Geography’, critiquing how the discipline is not ending but worlding the modern subject in new ways.

  • Terrestrial territories: From the Globe to Gaia, a new ground for
           territory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Alexis Gonin, Jeanne Etelain, Patrice Maniglier, Andrea Mubi Brighenti
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Territory is a central tool for analysing the politics, primarily between nation-states, of the division of a world based on the figure of the Globe. However, with the Anthropocene, the ground of territories has somehow changed, shifting from ‘the Globe’ of the globalisation age, to the Anthropocene, where Gaia, or the earth-system, ‘irrupts’ onto the political scene. Yet, both sovereign territories and critical approaches to territoriality, despite revealing the role of non-human actors in territorial interactions, fail to take into account the issue of the habitability of the Earth. This article advances the notion of ‘terrestrial territories’ as a new descriptive and analytical tool for a Gaia-politics intended to transcend traditional geopolitics by taking into account the dynamics of the planet. Resulting from the original intersection between critical territory studies and the late work of Bruno Latour, it introduces terrestrial territories as an original and much-needed notion that could help to describe new coalitions of actors along new lines of divisions and conflicts based on the logic of Gaia. Beyond the famous but inefficient ‘think global, act local’ scheme, the notion of terrestrial territory tries to reconcile the apparent hyperglobal nature of the planetary and the obviously local nature of action.

      Authors: Daniel A. de Azevedo
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Criticism about the role of ontologies in geographical research has gained strength in recent years, especially following the work of Clive Barnett. Bodden's intervention aims to contribute to this debate through the philosophy of language. In this commentary, I reflect on the relationship between theory and practice within democratic theory, and present some reflections for taking this debate forward.

      Authors: Aya Nassar
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Less a response, this commentary is a conversation with Anna Secor's ‘Spacetimeunconscious’, riffing off its offering. I trace one of the playful characters in Secor's article, the speck of dust that shapeshifts across the paper's 18 pages, folding and dispersing geographies and temporalities. I am wrestling with how to make sense of geographies that I care about, exactly at the same moment when these geographies are blown up into shards all over my screen. And I would like to think of Secor's paper as a companion for me, and for those who might be trying to figure a way to face the slow and fast breakdown of the surfaces of the present; a supplement, rather than an answer, to the question of where do we go from here, now'

  • Informality at the heart of sustainable development

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brandon Marc Finn
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      As a term, the ‘structure of informality’ aims to elucidate how informality is produced, and why it persists. I argue that informality is engendered through the informal/formal dialectic, which constitutes a multiscalar process that creates global inequalities across time and space. We can better understand informality by studying colonial socio-spatial inequalities created through urbanization. Taking seriously the arguments put forward by Cobbinah and Olajide, I argue that the structure of informality must also be applied to understand contemporary neocolonial practices in relation to sustainable development. These practices include the use and misuse of informality in relation to three topics: (1) as a mode of generating and sustaining socio-spatial and economic inequalities; (2) the nascent and undertheorized relationship between informality and climate change; and (3) the importance of understanding and theorizing global informality at the heart of sustainable development to influence policy and practice. These topics have grown in salience because of the global push towards decarbonization, and despite informality being a dominant mode of economic, spatial, and political life in most of the world. Informality lies at the heart of sustainable development, thus making it essential to re-energize debates on its structures, forms, and driving forces.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This response engages with the commentaries of Gordon Waitt, Anna De Jong, Samantha Wilkinson, Elen-Maarja Trell, Bettina van Hoven, and Harng Luh Sin on our challenge for geographers to work ‘beyond moralizing, disciplining, and normalizing discourses’. We show how, when read together, these authors articulate progressive geographic imaginations and repeat orthodoxies and impasses that constitute problematic academic, political, policy, and popular thinking. In riposte, we sketch opportunities for pluralist, relational, congenic ontologies, and comparative ‘epissedemologies’, as new indicative examples to elaborate, and further advance, our original provocation towards re-thinking geographies of alcohol, drinking, drunkenness.

  • Urban state venturism: On state-led venture capital investments in the
           urban process of capital accumulation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Xiaobo Su, Kean Fan Lim
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Research on the urban process of capital accumulation has typically examined the state and capital as separate actors. This distinction is problematized by a long-standing, increasingly prominent but largely overlooked attempt by state institutions to drive urban development through venture capital (VC) investments. Conceptualized as urban state venturism in this paper, state-driven VC investments reflect at once a riskier extension of urban entrepreneurialism (through their speculative construction of place) and a transposition of state institutions into firm-level drivers of capitalist urbanization (through their roles as profit-oriented investors). To advance research on the urban process of capital accumulation through examining these imbricated state roles, this paper presents a new research agenda that comprises three dimensions, namely (i) the rationale of urban state venturism, (ii) the distribution of profits and risks, and (iii) the extent to which urban state venturism reflects state institutions’ intrinsic commitment to a ‘developmentalist’ ideology. In turn, the agenda foregrounds the value of assessing ‘new’ state capitalism through urban state venturism.

      Authors: Wilma S. Nchito
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The article by Brandon Finn titled ‘The structure of informality: The Zambian Copperbelt and the informal/formal dialectic' presents a discussion that, for me, needs to be had. I have always argued that some of these universally applied nomenclatures that have been used to label certain phenomena in the global South need revisiting. This is because they have been devised with a global North contextualization and do not adequately define the phenomena. Those seeking to define African informality most likely approach it from a Western context within which urbanization has evolved and developed to a level where systems and infrastructure work efficiently. My thinking on this issue is that ‘what would happen if we stopped trying to force development of the Global South to fit into western stereotypes'’ There seems to be an expectation of global South urban development to follow in the footsteps of the West. Meanwhile the development of cities on the continent have taken a totally different trajectory from the textbook cases that we find ourselves trying to superimpose on the global South cities.

  • Working through our differences: Limits of ontology in the ordinary lives
           of critical geographical theory

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Shawn Bodden
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      You won’t get far in geographical theory today without bumping into one ontology or another. Metaphysical assertions about key spatial concepts – ‘space is open’, ‘community is exclusionary’, ‘the political is agonistic’ – guide empirical analysis. In this mode of theorising, the vocation of critical geography is to correct conceptual misunderstandings and thereby direct political action. Curiously perhaps, the geographer becomes one who – in the name of emancipatory projects – points people to their proper place. An alternative approach to critical theory might consider instead how people place themselves. Just such a concern animates the varied enterprises operating under the name of ordinary language philosophy. This article examines how philosophies of ordinary language might contribute to new avenues of geographical research by examining the relationship between Stanley Cavell's writings on the human voice as a site of embodied and passionate response and Clive Barnett's call for an action-theoretic approach to social inquiry as an alternative to ontological critique. Taken together, their work recommends a programme of inquiry into ordinary critical geographies: how people circumstantiate the meaning, worth and wisdom of their actions, and, in doing so, work to place themselves in the world.

      Authors: Nancy Odendaal
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Prasad et al.'s (2023) article, ‘Smart City Planning and the Challenges of Informality in India’, makes an important contribution to understanding the limitations of smart city planning practices in a Southern context. However, whilst informality is a dominant feature of Southern urbanism, the appropriation of smart technologies by those at the margins tells an expanded story of smart urbanism from the bottom up, thereby challenging the underpinning notions of planning and smart urbanism.

  • Thoughts on ‘planetary rural geographies’: Commonalties of capitalist
           development, authoritarian populisms, and energy transition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: James McCarthy
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In contrast to the urban-centric framing of planetary urbanization, the concept of ‘planetary rural geographies’ emphasizes the ongoing importance and distinctiveness of pluriversal rural spaces and identities, including their continued centrality to the global economy. It also argues that rural spaces are especially defined by diverse relationships between the human and non-human that must be understood volumetrically, rather than through largely two-dimensional territorial imaginaries. These themes are developed and illustrated via consideration of contemporary rural geographies as spaces of crisis, spaces of conflict, and spaces of hope. The concept of planetary rural geographies could be enhanced by greater attention to key analytical commonalties among admittedly diverse rural geographies, particularly with respect to broader dynamics of capitalist development and climate change, an effort that could be supported via greater engagement between the literatures on specifically rural geographies, and those on rural populisms, climate adaptation and mitigation, and energy geographies.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Millions of hectares of farmland have been abandoned over the past decades globally. Yet abandonment remains a neglected ‘outside’ of both the planetary urbanization debate and the emerging field of planetary rural geographies. Engaging with abandonment can benefit both these debates and help overcome persistent and new binaries between the rural and the urban.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Friederike Landau-Donnelly
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary engages with Secor’s intriguing proposition of the spacetimeunconscious as a supplement to quantum physicist and philosopher Karen Barad’s spacetimematter, which puts forth a non-linear conception of time, irreducibly linked with a discontinuous notion of space, and a vibrant, multi-agential perspective onto matter. By interconnecting new feminist materialisms and psychoanalytic geographies, Secor nuances existing approaches in psychoanalytic geographies by placing emphasis on the elemental, material paradoxes of the unconscious – existing in/as/from the same fabric but also outside of themselves, in different aggregate states. With the aim to draw urban studies scholars and geographers closer to psychoanalytic thought, I make use of my own non-expert point of departure to first shed light on the offerings towards the academic politics of knowledge production that Secor's text holds. Second, I specify conceptual alignments between psychoanalytic and hydrofeminist geographical thought. Third, I mobilize the disjointed trope of hauntology to assist Secor's call for a more ambivalence-embracing and poetic approach to the production of geographical texts, knowledge and epistemologies.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary engages with Wang et al.'s formulation of planetary rural geographies through the global agro-industrial complex. Focusing on the violent roots, unequal drivers, and differentiated dynamics of agroindustrial development, I emphasize that agro-industrial expansion and intensification often carries forward technological and territorial legacies of plantations, colonialism, and warfare against rural places and people. A focus on monocultural developments as racial-colonial projects of control and extraction, I argue, is critical to understanding the contemporary dynamics of rural crises.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Thomas Brasdefer
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I address some of the assumptions of a geography focused on teleological promises. Ben Anderson presented attachment as a kind of relation with special endurance and significance, differentiating it from relations which may be entangled. As a result, the power of attachments lies in one's aspirations: they may turn abstract objects into proximal objects. I am responding to two emphases of the concept: on meaning and on sensuous attachment. I revisit Anderson and subsequent commentaries by Cockayne and Ruez, Coleman, Rose and Zhang plumbing their shared theoretical roots in Lauren Berlant and Michel Foucault for connective tissue. I refer casually to the rich literature in analytic philosophy on meaning. Caveat lector that there exists a lengthy debate on ‘belief–desire’ in philosophy and psychology about whether these affects alone may cause human action or if they need an external object: how can we know what we want if we do not know about it' For lack of space and geography, I will not cover this topic, and furthermore I am not bridging the chasm between analytic and continental philosophy; but both present methodological difficulties to attachment-as-placemaking.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This article is inspired by Finn's work which historizes the structure of formal–informal dialectic in Africa, arguing that the origin dates to the colonial era. I extend Finn's argument through the prism of formal–informal as a racialized binary embedded in the coloniality of Africa's socio-spatial policies. Drawing insights from African cities generally and Lagos in particular, I argue that the formal–informal binary has always been a tool of colonial domination, which (re)produces and maintains racial hierarchies and racialized displacement in contemporary times. This provides a useful frame to understand and challenge the hierarchical positioning of informality relative to formality.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Simone et al.’s ‘Inhabiting the Extensions’ is an important contribution to rethinking the logics of urbanization through the perspective of extensions. This commentary engages the text along the lines of bewilderment, a starting point for the authors of this piece. Engaging the works of economic anthropologist Jane Guyer and novelist Ben Okri as a West African comparative frame to ‘Inhabiting the Extensions’, this commentary describes bewilderment as an approach of (dis)orientation. To think of extension (instead of city centers vis-à-vis a perceived periphery) through the mode of bewilderment and disorientation, and as I suggest suspension, allows us to broaden our understanding in terms of allocating agency to the actions of urban residents as well as locating larger processes of urbanization.

      Authors: Tathagata Chatterji
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      India's smart cities initiative signals a clear turn towards the corporatisation of urban governance by entrusting planning responsibilities to special purpose vehicles (SPV) constituted as public sector companies in place of elected municipal governments. This commentary argues that the depoliticised approach of the SPV-driven smart city plans could be detrimental to the informal economy in the long run. Municipal politics has been a useful platform for the urban poor to negotiate their claims over the city, as there is a clientelistic relationship between urban informality and political actors. The scope for such negotiations has considerably shrunk in smart cities, with elite coalition bureaucrats and technocrats steering planning decisions.

In so doing, we re-visit ethnographic participant-led video data from our research on youth and belonging more than a decade ago.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I argue that planetary rural geographies and digital geographies have much to offer and learn from each other and identify their mutual reciprocities. By highlighting specific instances of digital mediation in rural areas, I demonstrate how digital technologies and practices are driving rural transformations at a planetary scale. Simultaneously, I identify how planetary rural thinking can offer valuable perspectives for digital geographers toward reconsidering urban-rural relations. I conclude by suggesting that Wang et al.'s call for more pluriversal planetary rural geographies may be achieved by attending to and incorporating considerations of the digital.

      Authors: Momen El-Husseiny
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary engages with the rich conundrum outlined in Simone et al.'s ‘Inhabiting the Extensions’ by extending its prose with the polemics of discrimination, justice, agency and refusal at Cairo's desert extensions. As people fail to redress injustices inherited from the colonial past, haunting their future becoming, questions of cityness prevail as to how extensions re-produce hegemonic experiments albeit in new orientations. In quest of the good life, I posit the urban passant as a politics of agency and postcolonial subjectivity drawn from Frantz Fanon, which elucidates people's tactics, spirals and maneuvers when confronting traditions of the oppressed. The purpose here is to develop a situated liberatory politics from within the middle of things.

      Authors: Harng Luh Sin
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary responds to Jayne and Valentine's (2023) call to rethink the geographies of alcohol, drinking, and drunkenness. It introduces recent observations on the prevalence and absence of alcohol drinking within academic research and workspaces in China, and in doing so highlights how a relational approach to the geographies of alcohol is needed in overcoming existing impasses in alcohol studies.

      Authors: Jonathan Friedrich, Gideon Tups
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Future-making allures with creating new spaces of possibilities, even amid apocalyptic times. However, in response to the call for more emphasis on what new possibilities emerge from geographies of the impossible, we question an overtly affirmative and hopeful focus on the making of new spaces and futures. We argue that the fugacity of emergent possibilities, coupled with the socio-material persistence and discursive hegemony of the old, constitute powerful mechanisms of future-unmaking that need to be critically examined.

      Authors: Prince K Guma
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Smart cities have gained increased traction worldwide. This commentary situates smart cities in the context of Southern urban settings. I demystify urban informality and recast informality as a valuable marker in the study of smart cities. Reiterating Prasad et al.'s appeal to explore the centrality of informality for smart city planning and development in the Global South, I contend that informality holds epistemic value, particularly in highlighting smart city diversity, heterogeneity, and incompleteness. Accordingly, I advocate for a critical lens and analysis that fosters a more open and inclusive understanding of the intersection of informality and smart urbanism.

      Authors: Julie-Anne Boudreau
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The strength of the analysis of extended urbanization proposed in Simone et al.'s (2023) ‘Inhabiting the Extensions’ resides in its fascinating ability to bring together a focus on micro gestures and individual decisions with a structural analysis of global capital flows, geopolitics, and climate change. The collective work of ethnographically diving in nine locations across the world, and bringing together these reflections, generated a rich and complex understanding of city-making processes through spatial and temporal extensions.

           conjuncturally

      Authors: Shaun S.K. Teo
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary argues that the practicability and viability of conjunctural analysis as a method can only be assessed and developed through collective efforts at stress-testing. I draw on key elements of Peck's method to offer a reflexive account considering the contours of a conjunctural analysis of Chinese state entrepreneurialism. I show how conjunctural analysis allows me to identify and understand the multiplex causality of China's shift in approach to urban redevelopment, and to develop relevant midlevel concepts which help to revise and broaden understandings of state entrepreneurialism. Rather than a one-to-one mapping between case and concept, conjunctural analysis has the potential to allow researchers to theorise geographical phenomena across time and space, where multiple lines of analyses and conceptualisation can enable horizontal and vertical theorisation, offering erstwhile obfuscated analytical insight and theoretical generativity.

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Samantha Wilkinson
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Jayne and Valentine offer opportunities to engage with alcohol, drinking, and drunkenness in ways that do not unreflexively reproduce ‘alcohol studies’ ontologies and epistemologies, which are infused with moralising, disciplining, and normalising discourses. I expand their contribution by proposing two ways to account for the complexities of alcohol, drinking, and drunkenness. First, I argue that the concept of ‘vital flows’, drawing on the work of Stern, can contribute to the proposed research agenda, giving agency to an array of more-than-human actants. Second, I contend that a participatory research design, including ‘open’ novel methods, can allow insight into relational geographies. I illustrate this through a proposed empirical account with young people in Gypsy, Roma, and Traveller communities, who have been underexplored in relation to drinking geographies and beyond.

  • Social reproduction, infrastructure, and the everyday

      Authors: Gökbörü Sarp Tanyildiz
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      One of the main preoccupations of contemporary (feminist) urban theory is to conceptualize social reproduction, infrastructures, and everyday as the constitutive elements of the processes of urbanization. In this commentary, I engage with McFadden's contribution to these efforts from the standpoint of the study of concept formation. This commentary dwells on McFadden's theoretical object of knowledge (i.e. ‘infrastructures of social reproduction') within the empirical context of ‘educational landscapes’ both in terms of the method of its construction and the political consequences of this method. I argue that while it is important to insist on the inseparability of social reproduction and infrastructures within the spatiotemporal unfolding of urbanization, our theoretical attempts must go beyond asserting this inseparability to be able to produce transformative social knowledge of the (non-)urban. A way in this direction, I suggest, is the method of recuperation of the specificities that produce social reproduction and infrastructures as both indivisible and individual under concrete socio-spatial histories, conditions, and principles.

  • Reconfiguring rurality

      Authors: Oluwatoyin Dare Kolawole
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The concept of planetary rural geographies is an antithesis of planetary urbanization's erasure of the ‘rural’. Rather than push the compartmentalization of development spaces or processes, planetary rural geographies provide a framework of analyses that valorizes epistemic plurality, and which can help to better understand emerging complex problems in an ever-evolving world. The three rural space spectra of crisis, conflict, and hope, which are embedded within the geographies of rurality, serve as a new configuration and units of analyses for reestablishing the enduring nature of rurality itself. While the propositions in the thesis are plausible, some critiques are, however, offered to further shed light on the complexities and unique attributes of rural places.

      Authors: Gordon Waitt, Anna De Jong
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In response to Jayne and Valentine's (2023) article, we build on their arguments that, like alcohol studies, many more-than-representational geographical accounts of alcohol consumption rely on a priori assumptions, ‘expressions’, and ‘facts’. To do so, we embrace their critique that our previous work fails to fully interrogate how alcohol consumption ‘transforms’, ‘shapes’, and ‘mediates’ emotions and effects. In revisiting our interpretation, we draw on Deleuze and Guattari's concept of territory to employ the interpretative strategies outlined by Jayne and Valentine of de-determination and how unfolding moments of socio-material relationships shape the affective capacity of bodies to act and sense. We illustrate how the concept of territory presents a productive analytical framework for alcohol, drinking, and drunkenness.

  • Thinking conjuncturally, looking elsewhere

      Authors: Colin Lorne, Matthew Thompson, Allan Cochrane
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Inspired by Jamie Peck’s recent article on conjunctural methodologies, we discuss how geographers might interpret these troubling times. We hope to keep the conversation going by suggesting that a strength of conjunctural analysis lies in trying to get to grips with multiple crises without always knowing precisely where to look. Another strength of this approach is to take seriously all the cultural and political work involved in the articulation of different struggles, tensions, and contradictions combining in complex, and sometimes surprising, ways. So, in addition to looking inward to economic geography, we suggest that thinking conjuncturally might also involve looking elsewhere to ask what's at stake in the present moment – in all its complexity – in order to bring other political possibilities into view.

      In this commentary, I chart the future trajectories of postcolonial literary geography that would enable it to become an inquiry of literary and geographical knowledge of 21st century globalization replete with neo-imperial agendas and controls. In this context, I focus on three overlapping moments in critical thought – the spatial turn, affective turn, and environmental turn – that can revitalize postcolonial literary geography to analyze and contest contemporary crises in place-making and its reflection in literature.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Responding to the culture of exceptionalism in urban China studies, our article ‘Theorising with urban China’ proposed different ways of leveraging urban China cases to develop a more global urban theory. Such an approach is ambitious and requires further clarification. The generous accounts of four commentators generated big questions and reflections on two fronts: first, on the relationship between theorising and theorising with urban China, and second, on the practicalities of cross-border collaboration in urban China research. This response argues that theorising urban China and theorising with urban China are two sides of the same coin; and that the complementarities between empiricism and theorisation can be fulfilled through collaborations across the Chinese border.

  • To whom does geography owe a future' Lessons from urban studies

      Authors: Asa Roast
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The stresses of the neoliberal academy relating to the precaritisation of labour and metricisation of research can often make it difficult in the present to envision a future of geographical thought and praxis which is capable of addressing the past and present epistemic injustices which human geography has inherited. Within the field of urban studies, the discourse of ‘urban futures’ has often been used to promise a more just and efficient future. This commentary takes the often-evoked notion of an urban future and considers how recent research in urban studies has sought to deconstruct the notion of the ‘urban’ in order to illustrate the complex and antagonistic present underlying such futures. Here urban studies has an analogous lesson for human geography more generally. Disaggregating the identity of ‘geographer’ from academic status and training can open up new practices for the co-production of knowledge beyond professional boundaries, which themselves can also aid in the creation of more just urban futures.

  • Spacetimeunconscious

      Authors: Anna J. Secor
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This article argues for an understanding of material geographies as invested with an unconscious dimension. I put forward the notion of spacetimeunconscious not as an inverse, double, or ‘other’ to Karen Barad's concept of spacetimematter, but as a supplement. Manifesting the spacetimeunconscious through the technique of montage, I draw together a range of phenomena, from the icing of water and the flashing of lightning to the awakenings of traumatised and displaced subjects. Across these juxtaposed parts, I argue that the unfolding of space and time responds to the enigmatic, irreducible message of the unconscious in the real. Spacetimeunconscious arrives as the ambassador of an unknown knowledge remembered for – or in the place of – a forgetful substance: water, dreamer, or electron. In an echo of the analytic method, I use montage to create generative connections, discontinuities, and instabilities between events, poetry, literature, and film, in the interstices of which the spacetimeunconscious may make an appearance.

      Authors: Chi-Mao Wang, Damian Maye, Michael Woods
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This paper proposes planetary rural geographies to counter the narrative of planetary urbanisation, which has contended that the whole planet has been urbanised and can be understood through urban theory without an outside. Whilst critics have challenged the metrophilia inherent to planetary urbanisation, advanced post-colonial critiques, and posited alternative models of ruralisation, we argue that these responses fall short of fully embracing the radical potential of a planetary perspective. We call for planetary rural geographies that examine rural places as sites of interaction between diverse more-than-human relations that extend above and below the Earth surface and contend that the configuration of human–environment interactions at the ‘rural’ end of urban–rural relations is critical to addressing planetary crises. We elaborate this argument by focusing on three geographies of planetary rurality: as a space of crisis, as a space of conflict, and as a space of hope, evidenced by examples drawn from the global rural literature.

      Authors: Weiqiang Lin, Peter Adey, Tina Harris
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The four generous commentaries to our article, Dispositions towards automation, have truly enriched and extended our thinking on ‘dispositions’ as a way of challenging binary readings of automation (i.e., either towards capitulation or adaptation). Two of our interlocutors have encouraged us to think more situationally about the way dispositions develop through user experience and encounter, while the other two welcome a further expansion of our ideas to include infrastructural and other non-human or environmental agencies. In this response, we clarify our original curiosities about capital's affective projects with respect to automation, as well as its attempts at steering dispositions in order to mitigate, precisely, the indeterminacy of labour and user ‘reactions’. At the same time, we discuss how the four provocations have inspired us to re-assemble these tendencies and sentiments more plurally, to incorporate a series of overlapping affects, capitalist plots, shifting design values, detours, exigencies, digital glitches, and material interjections. We are impressed by the holism of perspectives presented in this dialogue, and how the discussion has only reinforced ideas about the fragility of automation's relations.

      Authors: Patrick Brandful Cobbinah
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Informality has become central to urban sustainability and one of the most polemically debated topics in modern urban studies and human geography. Finn's analysis intends to bring critical geo-historical colonial research to this debate and remains an important contribution. In this essay, my main argument – which expands on Finn's work – is that informality in its current conception does not comprehend fully the colonial and neocolonial structures in Africa and fails to engage deeply enough to recognize informality's indispensability and alter existing notions and patterns of inequalities. I reflect on the embodiment of informality as Africa's urban culture and argue for its support to deliver sustainable outcomes.

      The relationship between the ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ sectors has long been a topic of academic inquiry. Brandon Finn's paper which focuses on a case study of Zambia argues for a deeper historicisation of the formal/informal inquiry. In my reflections on Finn's paper I suggest that Zambia's lack of a pre-colonial urban tradition may create some limitations on the historicisation of ‘informality’ and the discussion might usefully be pushed beyond the historical boundaries of European colonialism to consideration of urban economic activities in pre-colonial and pre-capitalist states and their urban centres.

      This commentary briefly develops Birch and Ward's argument that research on the ‘new asset geographies’ can make important contributions to understanding new and evolving geographies of social reproduction. I argue that processes and mechanisms of assetization connect not only to the making of markets but also of investor subjects, and are empirically and conceptually connected to multi-dimensional precarity in and beyond paid work. The latter signals the potential for more dialogue between researchers working to understand geographies of precarity and the new asset geographies.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Conjunctural analysis makes an important addition to the conceptual toolbox for understanding the contours of China's (capitalist) regional economies. In this commentary, we concur with Peck's suggestion that the conjunctural approach can animate economic geography's engagement with ‘thick’ theorization without foregoing context-rich inquiry. However, we also emphasize Stuart Hall's commitment to counter-hegemonic politics and his use of the conjunctural approach to explore – and ultimately facilitate – historical breaks in social structures of dominance. Through a brief exploration of ways of engaging the region in China area studies and Chinese geography, we discuss how the conjunctural approach can be mobilized to (re)politicize geographies of regional development.

      In this commentary on Andrew Tucker's ( ) article, ‘A Sexuality Pivot,’ I discuss both the exciting possibilities and some caveats to consider as we engage critically in solidarity-oriented research. In the main, I am interested in what kinds of considerations we as researchers must engage if we are to effectively pivot toward solidarity. Here, I engage the rich history of solidarity from Abolitionist and Black feminist traditions to think through how contributions from Black studies, expansively defined, might enrich the conversation on solidarity as a research method. In particular, I examine the fruitful possibilities drawn from D. Soyini Madison, Audre Lorde, and the strategy of witnessing (developed from Frederick Douglass by way of Dwight Conquergood) as a way of thinking through contemporary solidaristic scholarship on the geographies of sexuality.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary explores the dynamics of financialization in relation to educational infrastructures of social reproduction, an area McFadden identifies as a ‘generative avenue’ for future research. This exploration is accomplished through a discussion of how financialization is currently reshaping schooling in the US context in two ways: (a) through troubling the longstanding reproduction/resistance dialectic in education; and (b) through reorienting the built infrastructures of schooling into private revenue streams for investors. In doing so I argue that studying new modes of financial accumulation which directly touch upon the practices and infrastructures of schooling is critical to understanding the contemporary infrastructures of urban social reproduction that McFadden identifies.

      Authors: Emma Fraser
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The accelerated post-Covid expansion of online worlds presents an unprecedented move of people into real-time interactive digital spaces. What does this change mean for the future of geography as a discipline' At this critical juncture, there is potential to rethink the position of the digital in geographical thought and praxis – to move beyond apparently common-sense categorizations of real and virtual, representation and reality. This commentary considers the implications of the contemporary push toward ‘metaversal’ thinking for geographical theory as well as the significance of virtual world-making for geographical theorizations of digital space and place. I suggest that key thinkers on space and media geographies must be re-evaluated and applied to this new wave of digital development. What is the significance of recent debates around emerging spaces like the metaverse, augmented reality, and virtual reality, understood not as happenings with distinct real and virtual counterparts, but as geographical – spatial – phenomena'

      Authors: Lucas Pohl
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I trace the potential of ‘the impossible’ as a spatio-temporal category for geographical research. I proceed from the assumption that the impossible takes on an ever more prominent role in the contemporary zeitgeist, especially in light of current crisis dynamics, such as pandemics, climate change, or the threat of nuclear warfare. When the impossible ‘takes place’, it receives a geography, or means the end of geography. Geographies of the impossible suspend taken-for-granted facts, pave the way for new actors, function according to their own logic, and create spaces for extraordinary encounters. Studying these geographies encourages scholars to engage with dystopian and apocalyptic but also utopian and revolutionary spatialities as well as follow the desire to make possible tomorrow what is impossible today.

      Authors: Johanne M. Bruun, Anna Guasco
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Fieldwork remains a cornerstone of geographical research. Echoing longstanding critiques, this brief intervention envisions a future of geographical thought and praxis where fieldwork is critically interrogated rather than assumed. Approaching the field as a spatial-analytical category, we point to the creative ways that geographers have engaged and connected with their varied fields of research. Through examining recent geographical works that question the presumed locations of the field, experiment with various creative methods, and bridge pedagogy-practice divides, this intervention asks where and how the future fields of fieldwork might be located, practiced, and extended.

  • Limit(ation)s, sustainability, and the future of climate migration

      Authors: Jemima Nomunume Baada, Bipasha Baruah, Isaac Luginaah
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Climate change and human migration are two of the world's most pressing issues, as many populations rely on migration as an adaptation strategy to climatic stressors. Human experiences of, and responses to, climate stress are uneven and mediated by resource privilege. In many communities in the Global South, climate vulnerabilities are exacerbated by fragile ecological conditions due to geographical positioning, and many already marginalised groups shoulder a disproportionate burden of climate change effects, despite contributing the least to this problem. In parts of sub-Saharan Africa, rapidly deteriorating climatic conditions imply that climate vulnerabilities may be reproduced in migration destination areas as well. Drawing on primary research conducted in Ghana, we illustrate how migration may present limitations and thus serve as an unsustainable adaptation strategy towards climate change for agrarian and structurally marginalised groups. We highlight the need for more discussions of sustainability in issues of climate migration in Ghana and similar contexts of the Global South, and the urgency of mitigating climate change globally. We conclude with calls for more nuanced understandings of the futures of climate migration as an adaptive strategy.

  • Critical computation on a geographical register

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Clancy Wilmott
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary lays out a framework for building on early critical cartographic and critical geographic information system work to develop a critical approach for the computational future of geographical thought and praxis. Computation – as a highly representational and structural form which combines speech and action – is a very particular way of building worlds. As computation becomes more prevalent in critiques of deep fakes, GeoAI, and platform geographies, geographers have also developed the foundations for a critical computational approach with an explicitly spatial or geographical focus that combines both theory and practice. Yet, while many of the technological affordances of spatial computation are relatively novel, the critiques raised by social, political, economic, and cultural geographers shadow debates that emerged two decades ago between cartographers and geospatial scientists about the power and praxis of mapping as it becomes translated into a digital era. This commentary argues that by returning to these debates, as well as critique by Black, queer, and Indigenous computing seen in other disciplines, geographers find themselves in a moment of opportunity to deeply influence the future of computation via a situated, critical geographical thought and praxis.

  • Reorienting GIScience for a data-intensive society

      Authors: Bo Zhao
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I explore the potential future for GIScience to broaden its focus from technological advancements to examining the dynamic interactions between geographic information system (GIS) technology, its users, and the places where it is being utilized. Drawing on the postphenomenological perspectives of Don Ihde and his followers, this commentary reimagines GIScience by emphasizing its ability to shape and be shaped by human experiences and various creative forces across bodies and places. This reorientation decenters GIScience beyond the human body by also encompassing non-human entities such as animals, bots, and algorithms. In the face of a rapidly growing data-intensive society, this commentary underlines the importance of adopting a caring stance when it comes to the use and development of GIS. This perspective of care can enhance our understanding and empathy toward ourselves, the planet, and all other beings. This reorientation of GIScience plays a significant role in shaping future trajectories of GIScience and the discipline of geography, enabling us to effectively tackle the theoretical and practical challenges posed by a rapidly evolving data-intensive society.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Over a decade ago, RDK Herman wrote on the importance of Indigenous geographies and what made it distinct from the broader field of geography of which it is a part. In this commentary, I take up Herman's provocation by making the case that Indigenous geographies will continue to be a vital part of the field of geography as it moves forward into the future, especially in the ways that we think about, reimagine, and unsettle existing geographical thought and practices, particularly in the ways we relate to the physical and discursive spaces we move within.

      Authors: Rachael Squire
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary calls for a human geography that is more attentive to the complexities of making sense of place in extreme and troubling times. It explores how place is produced, navigated, and, importantly, enclosed in a time of climate crisis. It argues that, in particular contexts, very ordinary, mundane, even boring emotions and affective registers might animate this process, grounding future thinking within the present moment. It then turns to think through how such conditions are being produced and manufactured through extraordinary enclosures and analogue spaces.

      Authors: Sofia Zaragocin
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary engages with contemporary interpretations of the Global South in relation to the hemispheric scale in critical human geography. I am particularly interested in contributing to conversations on how the Global North/South divide can be untangled and challenged through a critical reimagining of the hemispheric scale within the Latin American context. With this in mind, I ask: how does the term ‘Global South’ relate to existing decolonial imaginations that go beyond the nation-state' And, more specifically, how does the ‘Global South’ enframe the world vis-a-vis the geographical imaginaries of Abya Yala and Améfrica Ladina, which have their roots in Indigenous and Black understandings of the Americas and are being used to directly question colonial understandings of this world region' I argue that the hemispheric scale in this context can be reimagined as a place from which continuous interconnections between existing decolonial imaginaries can occur.

  • Infrastructures of social reproduction: Schools, everyday urban life, and

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Keavy McFadden
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Drawing together the literature on social reproduction and infrastructure, this paper demonstrates how understanding education as an infrastructure of social reproduction enables scholars to evaluate the ways in which changing education landscapes affect other aspects of urban life for residents. Building from the empirical context of Chicago's schools, this paper demonstrates how racism characterizes the dispossession of social reproductive infrastructures and attendant transformations of urban life. In doing so, this article argues that theorizing education as an infrastructure of social reproduction allows for a more robust theorization of the relationship between social reproduction and the built environment as well as the everyday temporality of social reproduction. Theorizing education landscapes in this way facilitates sharper thinking around a contradiction at the heart of social reproduction theory: that social reproductive sites are increasingly key spaces of capital accumulation while simultaneously serving as important terrains to fight that process. This framework allows for close attention to how the frictions between the social reproductive needs of capital and the social reproductive needs of communities play out within urban infrastructures in Chicago.

      Authors: Emily Rosenman, Priti Narayan
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary builds on Doreen Massey's thinking on the economy and relationality to ask: who gets to produce economic knowledge and whose lives does research make visible as economic matters of concern' These questions have been thrown into sharp relief as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic has highlighted the need for better infrastructures of care, it has also demonstrated that the mission of ‘saving the economy’ from the ravages of COVID-19 has not centred the concerns of those who have experienced the crisis most acutely. Drawing inspiration from the various economic subjects who continue to make, re-make, and articulate the economy through regular shocks and crises – workers, caregivers, and people marginalized by identity or geography – this commentary makes a case for a public economic geography that rethinks who is taken seriously as an ‘expert’ on the economy, and to what publics the field speaks. This, at its heart, is a radical rethinking of accountability, calling on economic geographers to ask: what should research do for whom, and how'

      In this commentary, we argue for the continued importance of engaged scholarship to the futures of geographical thought and praxis. In drawing on our own situated research and teaching lives in Cape Town, we suggest three avenues to advance the future possibilities of this mode of work: ‘resourcing prefiguration’, ‘bridging incommensurability’, and ‘critical institutional praxis’. We offer these as our contribution to advancing scholarship committed to making knowledge more alive to the world and acting in support of socio-political struggle and emancipatory geographic futures.

      Authors: Jessie Speer
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Millions of people across the world today live without access to safe, stable housing. Geography has contributed greatly to current understandings of homelessness and pushed the broader field of homelessness studies to challenge the unequal power relations embedded in our homes, institutions, and cities. This short reflection presents a brief overview of some key insights of geographical research on homelessness and argues that geography's contributions could be strengthened by taking a more global approach to the problem. Building on the concept of ‘worlding’, I argue that the discipline can move beyond its focus on European and North American dynamics, broaden its narrow conception of homelessness to include analysis of informality and housing precarity, and engage a more diverse repertoire of theoretical frameworks for understanding the problem.

      Authors: Archie Davies
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary suggests that the history of geography can best contribute to the future of geography through an open and recursive approach to the history of ideas about space and nature. I argue that the history of geographical ideas should develop in dialectical relation with how contemporary geography changes. To support this argument, I sketch what a recursive and anti-disciplinary history of geography might look like, as each new geographical innovation opens new paths for the history of geographical ideas to tread, and new histories of thinking to scrutinise.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The proliferation and everywhereness of digital materialities, operations, and mediations require attention to the ways that colonial knowledge assumes access to Indigenous lands. In this commentary, I consider what an agenda for accountable digital geographies might look like. With the turn to (re)imagine the futures of geographical praxis, I invite a collective inquiry on how digital practices can work toward geographies of accountability and restitution on Indigenous lands with the aim of honoring the places, spaces, and communities in which geographical knowledge emerges. I suggest that decolonial and anticolonial methods redirect digital practices toward Land Back, re-orienting geographical knowledge to the affirmation of Indigenous life.

      In this commentary, I make a case for recognizing and encouraging in human geography a sort of mundane kindness that is unremarkable in its ambition, but potentially profound in its impacts. Although it is important to continue to analyze the conditions that have left so many of us in need of acts of kindness that compensate for the failures and violence of the neoliberal academy, I argue that alongside this critical scholarship we could continue to make room for ‘ordinary’ kindness that does not necessarily need to justify itself through critical reflection.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Amid the COVID-19 pandemic and the multiple issues we are confronting at the contemporary moment, geographers are faced with the critical task of finding ways to address and grapple with these concerns. This commentary advocates for community geography as an important praxis-oriented intervention that utilizes theory and methods for community issues. However, the practice of community geography is constrained by academia's neoliberalizing terrain, whereby a globalizing deployment of ‘publish-or-perish’ productivity has been reconfiguring what geographers can and ought to be doing. By going against the neoliberal grain and practicing community geography, the possibilities for theoretical innovation and political potentials open up towards a geography that is socially relevant and directly addresses issues affecting the lives of marginalized community members.

      Responding to the parallel that Tucker draws between the divergent geopolitical accounts of the decline of British power from the late-nineteenth century and the focus he proposes for sexuality in accounts of the current decline of US power, this commentary reconsiders the geopolitics of the solidarities around sexuality that Tucker highlights. I find the geopolitics of aid too colonial in their intent and effects to be called a solidarity. I extend Tucker's focus on homonationalism to consider how conservative sexualities are complicit in the modern rise of autocracy and incipient fascism.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary takes on Jamie Peck’s conjunctural methodologies and reflects on the epistemological matter of theory and explanation in geography. Mapping onto several key elements of conjunctural analysis, I reframe its methodological examination in relation to mid-level concepts and theories (i.e. mid-range theory), the articulation of causality and causal co-determination (i.e. causal mechanisms), and situational analysis, historicisation, and thick theorisation as context-rich explanation (i.e. context-specificity). By way of a sympathetic critique, I focus on two potential ‘blind spots’ that might require further rethinking and perhaps remedies: the underdevelopment of practical adequacy and the role of normative theorising in conjunctural methodologies.

After considering the limits to dialogue in a time of trouble, I map the possibilities of internationalism at different geographic scales and academic locations, all of which call for traveling geographies that cross physical, ontological, and epistemic borders.

      The future of geography has to accommodate a constraint: academia's intellectual responsibility for school geography.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The current abundance of geographical research on social infrastructure has drawn renewed attention to the enduring importance of a range of public services, including the public library. However, these works have not engaged at length with the infrastructural futures of such services, neither in their ongoing vulnerability, nor with what they may illuminate, or already contain of possible and more radical urban futures. This commentary considers the future of social infrastructure: the viability of the physical spaces themselves, and the need for the theoretical concept to engage more explicitly with questions of temporality.

      Authors: Rodrigo Dutra Gomes
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The perspectives of Brazilian geography for the twenty-first century are guided by a conception of the world that highlights differences and a theoretical-methodological attitude that favors the dialogue and mixture of approaches, theories, and methods. In Brazilian geography, the highlighting of differences and dialogues informs geographical perspectives that value the space of the ‘insider's point of view’ as well as a theoretically and methodologically less unilateral and more multidimensional approach. Examples of these trends include (1) research on the production of space from the standpoint of people's everyday lives and critiquing the spaces of capitalism, racism, and sexism; (2) integrative approaches to landscape studies of environmental problems at the local scale; (3) autonomous socio-spatial practices in both rural and urban areas. A plural, mixtured, and creative geography with political, social, and environmental engagement will be one of the contributions of Brazilian geographical thought that will shape the geographies of the future.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Ecological collapse and the proliferation of digitally mediated relations are two conjoined elements of the ‘technonatural present’, which pose varied challenges and openings for the future of geographical thought and praxis beyond the delineated sub-disciplinary concerns of more-than-human and digital geographies. In this commentary, we draw attention to the inseparability, now and into the future, of geographical thought and praxis from digital mediation. This mediation is also central to forms of encounter, exploitation, and governance shaping human-nonhuman relations. Within this complex nexus of humans, nonhumans, environments, and technologies, it is crucial to critically examine how nature is made (mediated) and remade (remediated), by whom, for whom, and with whom. We call for research that affirmatively centres the potentials for progressive digitally-mediated environmentalisms, drawing from Agnieszka Leszczynski and Sarah Elwood's work on ‘glitch epistemologies’. To conclude, we point to a series of themes and questions that geographers might usefully engage with as they navigate digitally (re)mediated catastrophic times.

      Authors: Rachael Boswell
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I explore what an artists’ process offers to city-making: how urban experimentation can open up hopeful, surprising, and imaginative urban encounters and futures. By doing so, I imagine a future for geographical thought and praxis lying partly in the interesting places where they overlap with artistic practice. I ground this thinking on the unstable surface found in the years immediately following the 2010–11 earthquakes in Christchurch, New Zealand. It was into a wasteland of post-earthquake demolition that ‘ordinary citizens’ started to insert creative interventions (known in the literature as do-it-yourself, or DIY, urbanism). I explore how an understanding of creative ‘flow’ helped me untangle what was particular and unique about the uprising of DIY urbanism in post-earthquake Christchurch. From the ‘doing’ of creative practitioners in the city during this time emerged a different and new energy: an imaginative, hopeful, open-ended feeling of the possibilities hidden behind the facade of grey rubble. In particular, I examine how existing work in the geohumanities around hope and temporalities resonates with DIY urbanism and consider what artistic practices may have to offer geographical thought and praxis.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Instead of generating a grand theory from urban China, I have a rather modest aim – how we might use the political-economic perspective to better understand China's urban development politics. Rather than treating empirical materials and theoretical insights as discrete entities, describing China should itself be regarded as a process of theorisation, contributing to a more global Urban Studies. We illustrate how ‘state entrepreneurialism’, as a quite peculiar form of governance, is generated from the conjunctural development of global capitalism and its crises. Hence, the role of the state is not a starting point for theoretical enquiry but rather a historical and material development of China's political economy.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      To think through the dispositions automated systems attempt to generate, it is key to understand how automated systems relate to the environments in which they operate. Developing Lin et al.’s important arguments around dispositions towards automation, this short response suggests the concept of disposition can be broadened to think about non-human dispositions more widely. To do this, the response forwards the notion of environmental disposition; a kind of fundamental state that all entities find themselves in, whereby entities are compelled to enter a more or less provisional position or grounding in an environment or milieu.

  • Form, genre, voice, and authority in human geography: A speculative
           genealogy

      Authors: Julian Brigstocke
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This speculative genealogy of trends in the written forms of geographical scholarship, 2020–2043, explores the dramatic transformations in the discipline that came with a ‘neo-formalist’ turn towards critical reflection on and experiment with the formal aspects of geographical writing, including structure, genre, voice, and style. At the start of the 2020s, the forms, genres, and styles of academic geographical writing in Anglophone research journals were still rather homogeneous in form. Experiments with form were mostly restricted to sub-disciplinary silos. Following a series of important scholarly interventions, the discipline started to reflect more earnestly on the different kinds of authority that are claimed through the use of particular written forms and authorial personas. Whereas in the early decades of the 21st century, authorial personas were mostly confident, self-assured, decisive, and expressing a ‘mastery’ of concepts, the turn towards greater critical analysis of geography's written forms led to a proliferation of authorial personas, often rejecting personas associated with ‘mastery’ and instead exploring hesitation, anxiety, indecision, passivity, improvisation, unreliability, plurality, failure, humour, and self-deprecation, as ways of claiming different, more egalitarian forms of epistemic authority. This genealogy concludes that despite the problem of eclecticism, this turn towards greater methodological reflection on geography's written forms has greatly enriched the discipline from the mid-2020s until today.

  • Building decolonial climate justice movements: Four tensions

      Authors: Michael Simpson, Alejandra Pizarro Choy
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Prevailing approaches to resolving the climate crisis further entrench and extend the same institutions of racial capitalism and colonial domination which have precipitated this crisis. The need to build transformative movements to fight for climate justice is dire. Yet, transformative movements are inevitably structured by many of the same dynamics they oppose. This presents a risk that such movements may reproduce colonial or otherwise unjust relations in the worlds they seek to bring about. We point to four areas of tension where we see this dilemma playing out within efforts to build decolonial climate justice movements, and briefly discuss some questions that arise for scholars committed to this work.

      Authors: AbdouMaliq Simone, Dominique Somda, Giulia Torino, Miya Irawati, Niranjana R., Nitin Bathla, Rodrigo Castriota, Simone Vegliò, Tanya Chandra
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Across the different vernaculars of the world's urban majorities, there is renewed bewilderment as to what is going on in the cities in which they reside and frequently self-build. Prices are unaffordable and they are either pushed out or strongly lured away from central locations. Work is increasingly temporary, if available at all, and there is often just too much labour involved to keep lives viably in place. Not only do they look for affordability and new opportunities at increasingly distant suburbs and hinterlands, but for orientations, for ways of reading where things are heading, increasingly hedging their bets across multiple locations and affiliations. Coming together to write this piece from our own multiple orientations, we are eight researchers who, over the past year, joined to consider how variegated trajectories of expansion unsettle the current logics of city-making. We have used the notion of extensions as a way of thinking about operating in the middle of things, as both a reflection of and a way of dealing with this unsettling. An unsettling that disrupts clear designations of points of departure and arrival, of movement and settlement, of centre and periphery, of time and space.

      Authors: Penelope Anthias
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I extend Derickson's (2020) conception of the ‘annihilation of time by space’ to reflect on an experience of making a documentary about women-led resistance to hydrocarbon development in Southern Bolivia, where the forging of new spatial knowledges, practices, and relations – or countertopographies of extraction – played a critical role in disrupting fossil futures. I consider what geographers might learn from these women's example about the potentialities of space and materiality for unsettling liberal futurities and suggest how a focus on countertopographies might reorient the futures of geographical thought and praxis.

      Authors: Max D. Woodworth
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Urban studies have been roiled by a lively debate over the roles of generalization and particularity in advancing theory about cities and urbanization. Also at stake are questions of epistemology, method, inclusion, representation, and power in knowledge production. Teo, Chung, and Wang have proposed a set of methodological propositions aimed at ‘building theory in and through urban China’ as a contribution to the larger ongoing discussion about urban theory and global urban studies. In this commentary, I present a critique of their methodological proposals by highlighting issues originating from within and outside the field of urban Chinese studies.

  • The structure of informality: The Zambian copperbelt and the
           informal/formal dialectic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Brandon Marc Finn
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      The study of urban informality has exploded since Keith Hart theorized the term the ‘informal sector.' This explosion has coincided with a growing interest among urban scholars who train their eyes toward the ‘Global South.' Informality is used as shorthand for any number of urban experiences and realities ranging from the economy to governance, housing, the state, agency, political resistance, the urban form, and poverty. Much scholarship carefully illustrates different versions and modes of ‘informality,' while equating the term's first use with the provenance of the practice itself. Despite the global heterogeneity of informality, its instantiation can be traced further back than the 1960s and 1970s. Nearly half a century since the advent of the term the ‘informal sector,' we are still left with a deceptively simple question. If the creation and practice of informality predate African independence, where does it come from' This paper argues that the Zambian Copperbelt's early 20th–century history of urbanization and migration produced the informal/formal dialectic, establishing the grounds for inequalities that proliferate in the present. The structure of ‘informality’ finds its roots in colonial spatial strategies central to the formation of global capitalism. Through this dialectic, urbanization became a key mode of colonialism.

           history

      Authors: António Ferraz de Oliveira
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Renewed efforts to write geography's intellectual histories hold promise for reimagining our hereafter. True for the discipline as a whole, this holds particularly true for geopolitics. Beyond restating the infamy of some figures in this tradition, present-day opportunities lie in three growing orientations: (1) pluralizing our canon through the recovery of non-Western and radical progressive thinkers, (2) deepening our study through digital methods and interdisciplinary dialogue; and (3) rewriting the intellectual histories of geopolitics entwined with contemporary concerns such as climate change, racial injustice, democratic failure, and techno-optimism. Through these three orientations, we may give ourselves a powerful means to reimagine our future more humbly, critically, and creatively. A better appreciation of the past's latent possibilities, cautionary failures, and imperfect successes may yet inspire us to think and act more effectively in struggling towards better worlds. Futures past may then speak to futures present, summoning us to greater boldness and realism.

  • Cosmohistories and pluriversal dialogues: The future of the history of
           geography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Federico Ferretti, Geronimo Barrera de la Torre
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      When it comes to the ‘History of Geography’, many still think of something descriptive and conservative, which has virtually no links with the ‘future’, a metaphorical place where ‘progress’ and ‘advancements’ are usually located. The existence of such feelings exposes how some lingering positivistic views still remain in parts of the discipline that claimed to have got rid of positivism. In this commentary, we contend that the history of geography can play an important role in reimagining the future of the discipline. First, drawing upon our own research experience and extending recent literature on ‘geographical futures’, we expose why the history of geography is making increasingly important contributions to key discussions in a plural and evolving discipline. We especially focus on the ongoing pluralistic and multilingual rediscovery of ‘other geographical traditions’ that is enriching critical, radical, and feminist approaches to geography. Next, we propose to enrich the field of geography and its prevailing ‘Western’ origin stories by engaging in pluriversal dialogues with Indigenous knowledge and practices, focusing on Latin America and on decolonial notions such as cosmohistory, which show that there are many histories of geography, and they all matter for the futures of the discipline.

      Teo et al.'s (2023) article effectively highlights that producing new narratives or imaginations is key to developing a deeper understanding of both Chinese cities and those of other contexts. However, certain ‘information cocoons’ still require closer consideration, such as the lack of attention given to narratives produced within the state territory of China, over-reliance on political economic analysis, and the impact of disciplinary boundaries.

      Authors: Mohammed Rafi Arefin, Carolyn Prouse
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, we argue that geographical thought and praxis must engage with repressive biosecurity and biosurveillance systems and fight for alternatives. In doing so, geographers can contribute to an emerging anti-colonial and anti-racist interdisciplinary science. We suggest two counter-collaborations towards alternative bio-securitizations: working with those who have been cast out of biopolitical worlds and have long been fostering life for their communities; and working with practitioners of hegemonic science to re-direct biomedical efforts. Building these collaborations would orient biosecurity praxis to those biosecuritizations that already exist at the margins of violent security programs and foster communal and just care relations as the foundation for a liberatory and interdisciplinary science.

      Authors: Yanheng Lu, Junxi Qian
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      While knowledge production in geography is adept at providing critical perspectives that unravel the deficiencies in existing social, economic, and political systems, it has been less forthcoming in considering the means of constructing alternative worlds. One way to address this shortfall is to draw insights from social innovations produced in real-world contexts by a plurality of actors. In this commentary, we draw on the theoretical points underlying the existing literature on experiments in urban and regional contexts to illustrate the importance of architectural experiments in China. We also reflect on how such a research focus can enrich the analytical framework of social experiments by highlighting plural knowledge producers, diverse rationalities underlying experiments, and socio-economic relations beyond the market.

      The approaches proffered by Teo et al. in ‘Theorizing with urban China’ are constructive ways forward that also provoke a number of questions about the qualitative distinctions between generalizing and universalizing when it comes to theory. While supportive of the gestures to think with elsewhere, to generate theory for the mid-range and to work with researchers who are embedded in the contexts of study, some specifications are desired: If not everywhere, then which specific elsewheres are relevant' How big is the middle of mid-range theorization' How deeply embedded should collaborators be'

      Authors: Shaun SK Teo, Calvin King Lam Chung, Zheng Wang
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Despite global academic interest, the field of urban China continues to be dominated by exceptionalist theorising. Given that the unique properties of Chinese urbanisation present rich cases for an engaged pluralism in urban studies, we argue for theorising with urban China based on two methodological grounds: ‘thinking cities through elsewhere’ and conjunctural analysis. This opens space for mid-level theorisation, which has the potential to contribute to the revision of existing theoretical frameworks and/or create new starting points for analysis and conceptualisation between urban China and a wider range of contexts. We propose three tactics for mid-level conceptualisation with urban China cases: generating concepts through bespoke comparisons between cases in urban China and elsewhere; conceptualising from a single urban China case by placing two theoretical frameworks into conversation; and launching concepts developed from inductive research in urban China to develop novel analytical frameworks. We conclude by arguing that theorising with urban China can benefit from collaborative research across borders, with the need to include researchers who are deeply embedded in the field.

  • Practicing conjunctural methodologies: Engaging Chinese capitalism

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Jamie Peck
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Conjunctural analysis is a rather enigmatic practice, observed mostly after the fact and in feats of exemplary execution, apparently somewhat resistant to codification, and maybe too modish for methodological rules. Predicated on the analysis of politically salient ‘situations’, conjunctural approaches combine reflexive theorizing with socially engaged inquiry and context-rich, historicized modes of analysis. Exploring the potential of conjunctural analysis in economic geography, the article moves first to tease out the methodological implications of this rather elusive approach, including: attention to complex states of causal codetermination, ‘in articulation’; an orientation to relational and ‘unbounded’ modes of inquiry; an emphasis on the stress-testing of received theory claims and conceptual categories, often in anomalous (as opposed to ‘typical’) situations; and a commitment to reflexivity, context-engaged analysis, and ‘thick’ theorization. Second, the article interrogates these methodological dispositions and propositions by placing them in dialogue, indicatively, with the case of Chinese capitalism. This is a case that routinely frustrates and confounds extant theoretical frameworks and conceptual categories, sometimes prompting theoretical defeatism. Although conjunctural analysis is not methodologically prescriptive, it implies distinctive criteria for problem formulation and research design; for ‘casing’, case selection, and specification; and for the exposition and (re)construction of contextualized theory claims.

      Authors: Weiqiang Lin
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Over the past decade, geographical scholarship has grown steadily enamoured with all things technical. In some ways, such a focus is an outflow of the recent philosophical turn towards critical realism, which has encouraged a keener eye on more-than-human worlds. It demands careful delineations and understandings of the multi-stranded relationships between humans, technical objects, organisms, energies, and artificial intelligences that exceed anthropocentric epistemologies. This commentary seeks to address the challenges of studying the ‘technical’ in relation to the futures of geographical thought and praxis by proposing three strategies that might be developed in geographical research. These are, namely, the acquisition of a stronger grasp of technoscience expertise, care in following non-human things over time, and openness to interdisciplinary research. As more geographers enter into the fold of investigating ‘technical’ things, developing these skills would be invaluable to producing innovative spatial knowledge about these cryptic worlds.

      Authors: Eve Chiapello
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Birch and Ward (2022) propose the concept of assetization to frame a research agenda in Human Geography. This interesting proposal suffers from a rather imprecise definition of what an asset is, and that is a gap I intend to fill. I argue that assetization, for Birch and Ward, does not concern every type of asset, but only what can be described as ‘financialized assets’, including financial as well as intangible assets. I underline what financialized financial and intangible assets have in common and how that makes them relevant for analyzing contemporary capitalism. More precise specification of the assets created by Birch and Ward's assetization process clarifies the concept's true potential contribution.

      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      This commentary provides the contours of a Marxian critique of ‘assetisation’. In doing so, the paper identifies a subjective approach to valuation and value which ties together Birch's and Ward's appeal to theoretical pluralism. The argument highlights how a focus on future-orientated valuation practices elide the question of class and production and, therefore, the very basis of rent and value. A call is made for geographers to better interrogate the relationship between rent and interest in the flurry of research around rentiership.

      In response to Birch and Ward's paper, this commentary makes a call for a more systematic attempt to politicize contemporary logics of property ownership, and the extractive financial schemes based upon them. Building on earlier critiques of commodity fetishism in geography, I argue that a geographical politics of the asset form can help us defetishize and (re-)politicize the DNA of the ‘global return society’. Innovative visual methodologies play a key role in making new asset geographies public and actionable for social change.

           in a post-truth age

      Authors: Taylor Shelton
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in critical approaches to mapping and quantification within geography. Such works have embraced the potential of these methods to advance the cause of social and spatial justice in an increasingly data-driven world. But as more geographers are turning to these approaches, it seems that conventional sources of social data are less and less able to capture emerging forms of social and spatial inequality, or are made unavailable to researchers interested in uncovering and challenging these inequalities. This therefore opens up the question of how geographers interested in mobilizing maps and data for critical purposes can even study or make definitive claims about phenomena or processes for which there are no reliable or available sources of data' Together, these issues point to the fundamental challenge of opacity to the future of geographical thought and praxis, and the necessity for critical geographers to not simply abandon these methods because of such challenges, but rather embrace this fuzziness in new and productive ways.

      Authors: Deepti Prasad, Tooran Alizadeh, Robyn Dowling
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Smart city initiatives are mushrooming across the Global South, yet their implications for urban informality – a distinct challenge of planning in the cities of the Global South – remain overlooked. Using the Indian case as a focus and drawing upon empirical studies in three cities of Bhubaneswar, Pune, and Chennai, which are among the first 20 smart cities prioritised for implementation in the Smart Cities Mission, we show how informality challenges the understanding of the smart city. We analyse how this phenomenon is framed in smart city planning, focusing on the three domains of affordable housing, infrastructure services, and citizen engagement. We argue that using informality as a lens of critical analysis offers a new perspective on the ‘Southern theory’ of smart cities. In doing so, we highlight the disregard of informality at the cost of socio-spatial division – as a significant challenge for smart city development in India.

      Authors: Eden Kinkaid
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, responding to the prompt ‘reimagining the futures of geographical thought and praxis,’ I offer some provocations to queer this question of geography's future. I begin from moments of my queer experience in and of geography, from the recurring perception that I am ‘out of time’ in the discipline: that my ‘time’ and my ‘place’ in the discipline as a trans person have yet to come. Reflecting on the origins of this perception, I find that my present belonging in the discipline is foreclosed and deferred in part by the promise of a more progressive future. I refuse this discourse of the future – and the liberal progress narrative of geography upon which it relies – and instead approach the question of geography's future as a matter of disciplinary reproduction. Drawing on ideas of queer futurity, I situate the future as a site of queer potential in the present: an ever-present capacity for difference-making located in our embodied relations and practices. Doing so encourages us to transform our discipline by queering its reproduction in the here-and-now – by making a difference – rather than waiting for a progressive and inclusive future to come upon us.

           geographies of alcohol, drinking, drunkenness

      Authors: Mark Jayne, Gill Valentine
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Despite significant advances over the past few decades, geographies of alcohol, drinking, drunkenness remain under-theorised and researched. Indeed, even when applying critical thinking, geographers have tended to unreflexively reproduce, rather than question ‘alcohol studies’ ontologies and epistemologies infused with moralising, disciplining, and normalising discourses. In response, we present three intertwined research trajectories, informed by broader human geography debates, which offer opportunities to engage with alcohol, drinking, drunkenness more carefully and critically through; relational, flat, and decolonising ontologies; de-determination and intensities of (non)human relations; and ethical and political imperatives of research that ask questions of ‘worth’ and ‘reason’. Specifically, this involves, firstly, reinvigorating theoretical challenges to dominant and long-entrenched political, policy, popular, and academic debates; secondly, pursuing focused empirical accounts of heterogeneous and complex knowledges, practices, materialities, emotions, embodiment, affective experiences, and performances; and thirdly, paying attention to topographies, qualities, forms, and intensities of relational time/spaces beyond alcohol consumption per se. Our conclusion reflects on the challenges and opportunities of re-thinking geographies of alcohol, drinking, drunkenness within and beyond the discipline.

  • Emplacing the disposition toward automation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Bo Zhao
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      In this commentary, I emphasize the necessity of situating the disposition toward automation in a place where the in-process disposition takes shape. Using this place perspective, I can critically analyze the automation's positionality and disposition's underlying structure. The analytical results remind us that a particular disposition can support the labor force’s adaptation to automation while also rejecting it. Thus, this commentary offers a more holistic understanding of automation, its impact on shifting labor relations, and how it transforms the reproduction of capital.

  • Passages to the outside: A prelude to a geophilosophy of the future

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Martin Savransky
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      What might it take to reimagine the futures of geographical thought on an Earth whose geological disjunctures and catastrophic dynamics have radically upended the progressive temporality that once made of ‘the future’ a modern article of faith and a matter of concern' What, in other words, is the future to those practices animated by the metamorphic forces of the Earth' Seeking to inhabit the problem-space these questions generate, this commentary suggests that at stake is nothing less than the challenge of learning to think of futurity immanently, as a problem of space. The challenge is to reimagine the future not as the promise of a yet-to-come but as a passage to the outside: to those immanent zones of indeterminacy, anarchy, and contingency composed in the interstices and outlaw edges of every territory, where impossible forms of sociality and speculative methodologies of life are improvised in the act of striding the movements and forces of an unstable and tumultuous earth, giving themselves over to the inchoate and the unformed, to a groundlessness that surrounds and subtends every ground, to a runaway metamorphosis which eludes finality and escapes totality. That, indeed, might be the task of a geophilosophy of the future.

  • Transforming dispositions towards automation

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: David Bissell
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      Speaking to debates on how digital automation is changing people's capacities, my commentary affirms the value of surveying the myriad dispositions to automation that are muffled by the force of dominant boosterist or dystopian narratives. However, rather than assuming strong ‘reactions’ to automated objects or interfaces, I speculate that interactions with automation might be better characterised as ‘non-encounters’ for many. I explain how the non-encounters of being lulled, cajoled, and swayed can be evaluated as politically troubling, but that responses to heighten awareness of automation's politics may not necessarily result in people caring more about it. My commentary proposes a more indeterminate understanding of how people immanently evaluate automation which invites a more transitional and low-intensity understanding of the dispositions involved.

  • A sexuality pivot: Thinking through solidarity, geographies of sexuality,
           and a world in transition

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: Andrew Tucker
      Abstract: Dialogues in Human Geography, Ahead of Print.
      While work on solidarities forms a core element within geographical scholarship, especially as related to forms of shared connection to address forms of inequality, few studies from the geographies of sexualities literature have directly engaged with the concept. This article argues that there are two complementary logics as to why scholars working on sexuality may want to consider more forcibly the concept of solidarity. One of these logics suggests that a focus on solidarities can further pre-existing key interests within the geographies of sexualities literature, especially in parts of the world that have historically received relatively limited research attention. A second logic suggests that a focus on sexuality-based solidarities can help enable sexualities scholars to further critical engagement regarding broader discourses, and offer alternative framings, regarding a world in transition. This article presents a series of examples, drawn from across sub-Saharan Africa, related to both logics together with a series of potential future directions for research. Taken collectively, this article, by drawing on earlier work on solidarity from within the discipline of geography, contends that there are a number of key benefits for sexualities scholars to undertake a ‘pivot’ or choice to explore solidarity more directly in the current moment.
