Closing Thoughts

ByHarriet Hawkins

At a time when those across geography and the arts and humanities were urging a greater criticality for these ways of working, the author wanted to respond with a form of criticality that met these approaches to geography and creative practice on their own terms, for the authorthis involved exploring what an admixture of work from geography and the humanities might offer. It felt that this diverse field of geographical research and creative practices, the rich range of ways of producing research and the forms it took, demanded an equally rich response. As such, the volume has drawn from across art theory and history as well as histories of geography. Inspiration also emerged from those historians of geography and of science, who have asserted the need to ‘put science in its place’ and sought to map various sites and scales of the production, consumption, and circulation of geographical knowledge.
