In this session, we will take on the role of the imagination in researching distant places. How are we imaginatively involved in places we may not have been? What are the dangers and opportunities of taking an imaginative approach to research? We will hear short presentations from Michael Bravo, Emily Hayes, Clive Oppenheimer, and Sverker Sörlin.
