For a politics of atmospheric governance

Journal Article


Abstract


  • A rise in social science scholarship on atmospheres has raised questions on how to articulate complex

    material and imperceptible events and encounters. Responding to Peter Adey’s Air Affinities, this review

    proposes the need to traverse geopolitics and geopoetics to more fully engage these. Going further, it argues

    that such traversals are key to approaching specific situations and devices of what we call ‘atmospheric

    policing’. Exploring recent examples of tear gas and sound warfare deployment in occupied Palestine, the

    review shows how discourses on atmospheres may be used to bring accountability into ecologies of violence.
