Sample text

Geography remains one important place for investigations of human–environment relations to be undertaken and communicated, though not the only one. It ultimately matters not where and under what banner such investigations occur. What is far more important is that societies continue to properly fund and resource them. After all, even in our supposedly digital, post-industrial, knowledge-intensive, ‘weightless’, information technology era, all of us draw upon the non-human world ineluctably as fleshy, emotional, thinking and acting beings.

If this is true, then it follows that the accounts of nature given by new materialists are no more innocent than any other accounts; they too can underwrite a particular orientation to the world. Indeed, it is possible to argue that the non-essentialist materialisms of these writers leads to a politics of nature that must invariably be a kind of active experimentation, since ‘we do not know in advance which way a line is going to turn’ (Deleuze and Parnet, 2002, p. 134; see also Braun, 2006b). From this perspective, the discipline of geography – as earth-writing – does not stand outside this experimentation, but participates in it.

It merits comment that these vitalist tendencies in human geography mirror, and to some extent draw upon, the growing influence of complexity theory, non-linear dynamics and notions of self-organisation within the physical sciences, including physical geography. In many fields, notions of equilibrium are decidedly out of fashion, for, as physical geographer Barbara Kennedy (1994, p. ’. Whether equilibrium theories are entirely outmoded, or, indeed, whether complexity theory can be said to be entirely opposed to them, is not entirely clear.
