Timetable Friday 01 September 2017, Session 3 (14:40 - 16:20)
Session abstract Professor Sally Eden passed away in September 2016 after an extended illness. Shortly beforehand, she had completed the manuscript of a book, Environmental Publics (now published by Routledge), which drew together much of her research over the past 20 years, and which forms the focus of this session. The book argues that environmental publics ought not be differentiated by who they are (consumers, citizens and so forth) but by their daily practices – what they do. This session celebrates Prof. Eden’s outstanding contribution to geographical research on society and environment. A series of short ‘mini-panels’ will explore the key arguments of her book, discussing their implications and significance for future research and practice on geographies of the environment.
