When flying into New York earlier this week, I was thrilled to find myself looking out the window at Long Island’s Jones Beach State Park. It so happens that Jones Beach, together with the seafronts at Aberystwyth and Tynemouth (along with the beaches of Lorain (Ohio), Santa Cruz (California), and St. George Island (Florida)) set the scene for the presentation that Kimberley Peters and I will be giving at next week’s Association of American Geographers meeting. We’ll be taking attendees on an autoethnographic journey through our recently published Society & Space article on ‘Wet Ontologies, Fluid Dynamics‘. Curious? Confused? Come to the AAG sessions on ‘Territory beyond Terra’ (panel 1 | panel 2), Tuesday afternoon.
