Engaging geography

1. the series

Engaging geography aims to explore and respond to two key challenges facing the discipline of geography in 2008 and beyond: the ‘state’ of the discipline, its disciplinary identity and public face, lack of interaction between academic, school, and other geographers, and the perceived inability to engage with and influence the world and public(s) ‘out there’ (see Castree et al, 2007); and the increasing calls for academics to play more prominent public roles outside their ivory tower offices, at a time of developing growth in ‘public’ variants of many social science disciplines (see Attwood, 2007).
