Geography and post-phenomenology

James Ash recently posted a useful introduction to conceptualisations of post-phenomenology to inform the upcoming RGS-IBG conference session he is co-convening with Paul Simpson. The ‘Geography and Post-Phenomenology’ session is sponsored by the HPGRG. Here is the introduction to James’ post:

The term post-phenonenology has been floating around for a number of years in geography (see the work of John Wylie and Mitch Rose) and other disciplines such as Philosophy and Science and Technology Studies (see for example the work of Don Ihde). Paul and myself both came to the term during our theses, although quite independently of one another. Myself through the work of Heidegger and Paul through the work of Husserl.

The session should be a good opportunity to think about what the term might mean and what it could offer contemporary human geography.
