I’ll be presenting a keynote for an event co-sponsored with the Catholic Theological Association, and as part of the network of Jesuit-sponsored ‘Living Theology’ weekend summer schools that take place across the UK.
At the network event, several of us shared a stories about commoning and for my contribution I brought a piece of speculative sci-fi in hopes this might open up some of the issues involved in commons work.
I was delighted to participate in the intermapping practitioner symposium this year. This is an amazing group of activitists, hackers, anarchists, and professional developers trying to use digital maps for the common good.
My paper/presentation will be titled “What is the temporality of climate change activism - some reflections on place attachment and the politics of nostalgia”
Panel details are as follows:
Thursday 19 April 2018, 2-5pm

I’m very much looking forward to delivering a paper at Cambridge on 30 January 2018. My host is the Energy@Cambridge research initiative. My full title for the presentation is: “Slow energy policy in a time of global emergencies: the perils and promises of energy policy and religious communities”
As part of my ongoing research on the Mapping Community project, we ran a laboratory day in the Digital Cultures Studio here at UOB.
