Weathering Mobilities Spring School

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar, course


In this ‘Spring School’ we invite post-graduate and early career researchers to participate in two days of discussion, experimentation, listening, reading, sensing and writing around (im)mobilities (of people, wildlife, satellites, water, and other materials) and ‘weathering’, at Royal Holloway University of London. We use ‘weathering’ to consider how lives are exposed, eroded and depleted by weather, and lives that also live-with, adapt, and respond to climate, its variations and material and elemental conditions. It equally acknowledges that those weathers, as Sharpe (2016) and others recognise, are as entangled with the wider atmospheres of ‘colonialism, racism, sexism’ and other forces that ‘are weather’ too (Engelmann and Dyer 2020). We are interested in exploring how weathering or weathered (im)mobilities might be sensed and made palpable in assemblages of bodies and machines, and expressed and articulated in a multitude of practices, such as in writing, walking, photography, and other artistic and creative practices.
