Human Geography Workshop: 'Staying with Geopolitical Trouble: Rethinking Collective Ethics and Risks'

20th November 2019, 13:00 to 16:00, W007, Main Geography Building

Academic leads: Hung-Ying Chen (, Lauren Martin (, Mike Crang (

Living in a world where we continually confront under-navigated and unforeseen (geo)political upheavals and climatic hazards, most geographers, regardless of disciplinary training, will encounter unexpected conditions in their research journey. From censoring, silencing, denying access, to threats of personal safety, these issues loom large in shaping our research strategy and conditioning academic freedom.

Given the polarised and contingent political landscapes in which many of us work, this cross-cluster roundtable aims to offer a communal space for concerned geographers at different career stages to share and reflect on university and research ethics amidst the contingent global processes.
