My 2019 Dialogues in Human Geography lecture, ‘Terrain, Politics, History‘ has been published in the journal (open access).
The responses are by:
Gastón Gordillo, The power of terrain: The affective materiality of planet Earth in the age of revolution (open access)
Bruno Latour, The Anthill and the Beam: A Response to Elden
Deborah P. Dixon, Drift in an Anthropocene: On the work of terrain (open access)
Rachael Squire, Where theories of terrain might land: Towards ‘pluriversal’ engagements with terrain (open access)
The last piece is my reply – The limits of territory and terrain (open access)
Many thanks to Gastón, Kim, Bruno, Deborah and Rachael for their engagement with this work. As I say in the response it was strange to reply to the responses eighteen months after I wrote the paper – it’s now almost two years since I completed it. A lot has happened since then. I’m also grateful to the journal’s editorial team – especially Rob Kitchin for the initial invitation, Jeremy Crampton for chairing the session and Reuben Rose-Redwood as managing editor.
