Technologies, Territories, and Mobilities

31 October 2011, 17:00 - 19:00

CRASSH

David Morley  (Professor of Communications, Goldsmiths College, University of London)


This talk will address the issues raised by contemporary theorisations of the role of  communications technologies as transformative of our senses of place, territory and belonging. It will be concerned with how we should now understand the interrelation of virtual and material geographies, in the context of processes of globalisation and de-territorialisation and the rise of new forms of mobility.

David Morley is Professor of Communications at Goldsmiths College, University of London. His current research concerns the interface of media and communication studies with cultural geography, and his most recent book is called Media, Modernity and Technology: The Geography of the New (Routledge 2007).
