Workshop Report from Territory, Law and the Anthropocene (Warwick, 1 December 2017)

My brief Workshop Report from the Territory, Law and the Anthropocene event held at the University of Warwick, 1 December 2017 is now up at the ICE-LAW Project site.

On 1 December 2017, the Territory subgroup held its second workshop, Territory, Law and the Anthropocene at the University of Warwick (UK).

The workshop built on the discussions of the first Territory workshop, held in Amsterdam earlier this year. This specific workshop looked at how specific territories were being transformed as a result of anthropogenic climate change – coastlines, sea ice, mountains and glaciers, and deserts. More generally it asked: how do we need to rethink our way of theorising territory, and the legal-political regimes that govern it, in the light of these changes?

The speakers were Andrea Bagnato (Italian Limes project), Nigel Clark (Lancaster Environment Centre), Klaus Dodds (Royal Holloway, University of London), Stuart Elden (University of Warwick), Madeleine Fagan (University of Warwick), Marco Ferrari (Italian Limes Project), Isla Forsyth (University of Nottingham), Timo Koivurova (University of Lapland), Dora Kostakopoulou (University of Warwick), Ingrid Medby (Oxford Brookes University), Phil Steinberg (Geography, Durham University) and Davor Vidas (Fridtjof Nansen Institute, Norway/University of Leicester). There were a number of other attendees, from University of Warwick and elsewhere. [continues here]
