New book ‘Weather, Climate, and the Geographical Imagination’ out now

Martin Mahony’s new book ‘Weather, Climate, and the Geographical Imagination’, published by the University of Pittsburgh Press, is now available to purchase.

The book, co-edited with Dr Samuel Randalls (Department of Geography, University College London), aims to crystallise an emerging and growing body of working on the historical geographies of weather and climate knowledges, while also linking this work to studies of the place of climate in the geographical imagination. The contributors are interested in how space and place shape atmospheric knowledge-making, but also how that atmospheric knowledge in turn shapes wider imaginations of spaces, places, landscapes, nations, and empires.

The book brings together a stellar cast of established and emerging scholars in this area: Simon Naylor, Matthew Goodman, George Adamson, Katharine Anderson, Ruth Morgan, James Kneale, Georgina Endfield, Meredith McKittrick, David Livingstone, Jim Fleming, Daniel Barber, and Mike Hulme.
