We welcome you to a paired set of Newcastle-Durham Geography research events on 14-15 May 2024 with Dr. Kasia Paprocki, from the Department of Geography and Environment at LSE. Kasia’s research makes crucial contributions to scholarship on the politics of development and rural futures in the 21st century, with particular insights into framings of climate crisis and adaptive possibilities in coastal Bangladesh. Her work is now broadly engaged across geography, political ecology, agrarian and development studies and beyond, and we are very excited to welcome Kasia for a conjoined seminar and research workshop event.
Tuesday, 14  May: Seminar at Newcastle University. 2pm (location TBA)
Wednesday, 15 May: Workshop at Durham, 10am-12pm (location TBA), ‘Climate Risk and the Politics of Knowledge’. In this workshop, Kasia and several invited discussants will begin by reflecting upon themes in Kasia’s work and relevance for their own research projects. We will then welcome similar reflections and discussion from attendees.
In preparation for events, you may wish to read Kasia’s excellent recent book Threatening Dystopias: The Global Politics of Climate Change Adaptation in Bangladesh, published in 2021 from Cornell University Press. Another great introduction to Kasia’s work is this article in Annals of the AAG: Paprocki, K. (2018). 'Threatening dystopias: Development and adaptation regimes in Bangladesh'. Annals of the American Association of Geographers, 108(4), 955-973
