Back in Durham for three days. Yesterday, Alec Murphy from the University of Oregon and I led a workshop on publishing for early-career researchers. The idea was that as editors of journals, Alec and I could offer some insight and advice into the process and things not to do. It wasn’t from the perspective of publishing our own work. It seemed to go well. I’ve done similar workshops in Singapore and at Queen Mary when Alec and I were both visitors there in 2009.
Today and tomorrow is a two day workshop on territoriality, inspired in part by the work of the Swiss geographer Claude Raffestin. Alec is here for that, along with a number of other speakers.
