Join our Author meets critics session with author of Home SOS, Professor Katherine Brickell of Royal Holloway, University of London.
The book shines a spotlight on domestic violence and eviction in Cambodia. Drawing on over 15 years of fieldwork and more than 300 interviews, Home SOS highlights the experiences of intimate violence and survival as told by Cambodian women.
This panel discussion, chaired by Dr Chih Yuan Woon of the National University of Singapore, brings together geographers including Professor Katherine Brickell, Mr Kevin Doyle from Dublin City University, Dr Sarah Marie Hall from the University of Manchester, and Dr Michele Lancione from the University of Sheffield. The discussion will explore Katherine’s conceptions of home, violence, and the crisis ordinary, the book’s arguments in understanding the links between the economy and violence in and beyond contemporary Cambodia, and its broader contributions to debates within economic, social, cultural and feminist geographies.
Author meets critics: Home SOS will take place at 2.00pm on Friday 23 October. Find out more and register now.
In January, we asked our Fellows and members about how they engage with the Society: how they keep up to date with our activities, which member benefits they use, and if they had suggestions for how we could improve their membership experience.
Congratulations to our Fellows who were awarded Chartered Geographer status by our Council in September.
To mark Black History Month this year, we will be featuring Black geographers from the 1800s to the present day who have a connection to the Society and who have contributed to a better understanding of our world.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Society's building is currently closed to everyone - including Fellows and members - and staff are working remotely.
