This website introduces and records the work of The Geographical Turn project. The project is funded by the Irish Research Council as part of its ‘New Foundations: Enhancing Knowledge Exchange,’ a set of initiatives to encourage knowledge transfer between academic and applied contexts. The Geographical Turn asks how geographers and artists might learn from their separate exploration of the common themes of space, place, and environment, the key concerns of Geography. They also resonate with the central political concerns of our time, the geographical dilemmas of modernity.
The core of the project is a set of pairings between academics and artists.
