I append the long version of my paper below, but first I must remark on some of the things that struck me as a relative 'outsider' and newbie to a geography conference.
- how vibrant and exciting many aspects of new geography seem;
- that many of the papers are essentially history or sociology, but are informed by a much greater knowledge and framework of theory and/or practical applications than equivalent history papers
- how more consciously interdisciplinary geographers are;
- geographies of resistance seem to be a big thing at the moment, as does, to a lesser extent represented at this conference, emotional geographies.
Read a long version of my paper on academia.edu: 'Thompson and a sense of place in The Making, and the making of place'.
