‘Epistemologies of Land’ is a series of webcasts organised by gloknos team member Felix Anderl (Peace Institute). This series will host international experts for discussions on the epistemology of land, ahead of a related publication which will highlight the role of the land on, and with which, human relations are enacted and how this land affects the knowledge that is generated and brought to use in social relations. The events are open to interested graduate and postgraduate researchers.

Leo Steeds is a researcher at the University of Warwick. His PhD, ‘Earth, Property, Territory: The Birth of an Economic Concept of Land’ was completed in 2020, and had been funded by an ESRC Doctoral Training Centre studentship. It focused on they way that, in recent years, responses to a broad range of environmental issues, from climate change to conservation, have frequently been phrased in terms of the need to create markets for environmental ‘goods’. Such schemes, heralding from the tradition of neoclassical economics, have frequently been shown to be problematic when put into practice.
