John Urry’s Offshoring

This blog has been a little quiet recently, mainly because of annual leave, a plethora of conferences, and the end of our first year of the Geopolitics and Security programme and the beginning of a new one in a few weeks time.

To get things moving again, and blogging is quite a habit, I wanted to post one of the most inspiring things I saw last week at Lancaster for their Global Conference on Mobility Futures. I’ll say more about the papers and plenaries in a later post and other conferences we’ve attended in just the last few weeks, but John Urry previewed his new book Offshoring (out with Polity next year) with a startlingly provocative and beautifully made animation produced by Morph which can be viewed here. Well worth a view.
