A tasty event for spatial thinkers and the otherwise geographically inclined – and I will be going to it! It’s ‘The First Annual Doreen Massey Lecture’ at the Royal Geographical Society…
A panel of speakers including Ash Amin, Olafur Eliasson, Stuart Hall, Ken Livingstone, Chantal Mouffe, Jamie Peck, Michael Rustin, Nigel Thrift and Jane Wills will engage with Doreen Massey’s work around ‘Space, Place and Politics’ (poor Olafur Eliasson has to put up with all these academics!). Of course, Doreen will also be there to comment (and maybe put the speakers straight?!).
The event will take place on 11 March 2009 at the Royal Geographical Society at the very civilised time of 2pm (ending at about 7pm with one of these popular drinks receptions).
A flyer can be downloaded here. (It is worth downloading this flyer for aesthetic purposes alone!)
For those who don’t know where the Royal Geographical Society is, it’s at 1 Kensington Gore, London, SW7 2AR. That means, if you walk up Exhibition Road from the Science Museum towards Hyde Park, the last building on your left will be the RGS!
