Upcoming ‘Wet Ontologies’ articles & talks

Two articles from my ‘Wet Ontologies’ project, both co-authored with Kimberley Peters, are due for publication in the next month or two: ‘Wet Ontologies, Fluid Dynamics: Giving Depth to Volume through Oceanic Thinking’, which will be published in Environment and Planning D: Society & Space, and a companion paper, ‘Volume and Vision: Toward a Wet Ontology’, which will be published in Harvard Design Magazine. To roll out the papers, I’ll be giving a number of talks on the topic over the next months.

First, on 4 December, I’ll be joining Lorenzo Pezzani and Lindsay Bremner for a programme titled ‘Of Water‘, sponsored by the University of Westminster’s Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment. My paper there — ‘Wet Ontologies, Fluid Dynamics, Legal Fi(x/ss)ions, Cold Facts’ — will present an overview of our work while focusing in particular on the political and legal implications of a ‘wet ontology’ perspective. The programme will begin at 6pm. See the conference poster for full details (and for an explanation of the unpronouncable title!).

Then, on 5 February, I’ll be giving a lecture to the Department of Visual Cultures at Goldsmith’s, University of London. I’ll post further details when I have them.

And finally, during the annual meeting of the Association of American Geographers in Chicago in April, Kim and I will be presenting our ‘Wet Ontologies’ work together, as the first of ten papers in the ‘Territory beyond Terra’ double-session that we’re organising together with Elaine Stratford.

Speaking of Kim, a big thanks to her and everyone else at Aberystwyth’s Department of Geography & Earth Sciences for organising such a wonderful visit for me over the past few days. Now it’s back to the grind of the day-job.
