New Empirics Workshop

The SCGRG’s workshop on Geography and the New Empirics took place last week and was a great success, attracting participants from Geography, Sociology, Anthropology and Art. The event addressed the changing nature of the empirical in terms of the new forms of data¬† (such as the emotional and the affective) and the new scales of data Geographers deal with. Following workshop sessions, researchers presented their work, and the event’s themes were drawn together and expanded on through a keynote address by Alan Latham, and a panel discussion with Ben Anderson, David Demeritt, Malcolm Fairbrother and Celia Lury. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the event’s success. We are currently exporing ways of taking these discussions forward.
