I recently co-organised an event on ‘Geography and the New Empirics' on behalf of the RGS Social and Cultural Geography Research Group. Held at UCL and the RGS, the event address the changing nature of the empirical in terms of new forms of data (such as the emotional and the affective), the new scales and quantity of data that Geographers deal with, and the practical/ethical issues of communicating this data to publics beyond the academy. Following workshop discussions and activities on the first day (I organised and led one on Experimental Encounters), day two comprised a series of paper presentations. The event's themes were drawn together and expanded on through a keynote address by Alan Latham (UCL) and a final panel discussion with Ben Anderson (Durham), David Demeritt (King's), Malcolm Fairbrother (Bristol) and Celia Lury (Goldsmiths).
