This paper critically analyses pervasive contemporary discourses that call for children and young people to be ‘reconnected’ with nature and natural resources. Simultaneously, it reflects upon emerging forms of nexus-thinking and policy that seek to identify and govern connections between diverse sectors, and especially water, energy and food. Both of these fields of scholarship are concerned with connections, of different kinds, and at different spatial scales. Based on a large-scale, mixed-met...

Fieldwork is central to the identity, culture and history of academic Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences (GEES). However, in this paper we recognise that, for many academic staff, fieldtrips can be a profoundly challenging “ordeal,” ill‐conducive to wellness or effective pedagogic practice. Drawing on research with 39 UK university‐based GEES academics who self‐identify as having a mental health condition, we explore how mental health intersects with spaces and expectations of fieldwork...

This article provides a reflection on Skelton and Valentine's (1998) book 'Cool Places'. The articles focuses upon the excitement, vitality and sense of challenge that the book first afforded when the two authors first encountered it. From these personal memories, the article then offers two sets of wider considerations. In the first, and prompted by the authors' use of the book in their teaching, it articulates how useful, relevant and engaging even contemporary students find the book, and how ...
Reflecting on a study of children’s outdoor play in a ‘white, working class estate’ in east London, this paper argues that social-material processes that are characteristically massy, indivisible, unseen, fluid and noxious have, problematically, remained hidden-in-plain-sight within multidisciplinary research with children and young people. For example, juxtaposing qualitative and autoethnographic data, we highlight children’s vivid, troubling narratives of swarming rats, smearing excrement, and...

ABSTRACTThis essay reflects upon a particular moment at the end of Chris Philo’s Children’s Geographies lecture [see Philo 2016. “‘Childhood is Measured Out by Sounds and Sights and Smells, Before the Dark Hour of Reason Grows’: Children’s Geographies at 12.” Children’s Geographies 14 (6): 623–640. doi:10.1080/14733285.2016.1187896], when discussion turned to cuddly toys. I recall a particular mood constituted in and by this moment: of apparent bashfulness, hesitancy, things-left-unsaid, and dis...

This chapter offers a critical engagement with a so-called ‘new wave’ of childhood studies. It begins by critically reviewing recent approaches to studying childhood that have been inspired by Actor-Network, new materialist and posthumanist philosophies. In doing so, we argue for greater attention to, and interdisciplinary collaboration with, research in children’s geographies, which has sought to attend to the nonrepresentational elements of children’s lives. The chapter then argues for a re-th...
