Thinking conjuncturally, looking elsewhere

Lorne, Colin; Thompson, Matthew and Cochrane, Allan (2023). Thinking conjuncturally, looking elsewhere. Dialogues in Human Geography (early access).



Inspired by Jamie Peck’s (2023) article on conjunctural methodologies, we discuss how geographers might interpret these troubling times. We hope to keep the conversation going by suggesting that a strength of conjunctural analysis lies in trying to get to grips with multiple crises without always knowing precisely where to look. Another strength of this approach is to take seriously all the cultural and political work involved in the articulation of different struggles, tensions, and contradictions combining in complex, and sometimes surprising, ways. So, in addition to looking inwards to economic geography, we suggest that thinking conjuncturally might also involve looking elsewhere to ask what’s at stake in the present moment – in all its complexity – in order to bring other political possibilities into view.
