Happy exam season! The final semester of the 2011-2012 is coming to a close, and exams kicked off just this morning.
To pick things up after a lengthy lack of posts, here are some readings that might be of interest:
- The world of academic publishing may be radically changing as social media becomes more advanced and the need for instant access to scientific knowledge more pressing. Richard Price writes compellingly about this vision of the future of science.
- The opening line of Richard Mabey's article, the second in an essay series on nature and landscape, makes it an instant must-read: Psychogeographers, the cognoscenti tell us, have been rebranded less dizzily as “deep topographers”.
- Urban geographers might enjoy this textual and visual feast of Teufelsberg, Germany in this article on the city as a palimpsest.
