Michael Watts interviewed by Stuart Elden for Society and Space

boarding-oil-platform-2005There is a long interview I conducted with Michael Watts (University of California, Berkeley) available open access at the Society & Space open site.

We talk about, among other things – his first book Silent Violence (recently available in a new edition); oil and the Niger Delta; Boko Haram; political ecology and political economy; geographies of violence, including RETORT’s Afflicted Powers; Clarence Glacken and a forthcoming collection of his unpublished and uncollected writings, co-edited by Michael; and the Dictionary of Human Geography and the state of the discipline. As well as providing very interesting and revealing answers to my questions, Michael also shared a number of stunning photographs from his archive.
