Animated Lands. Studies in Territoriology introduces us to a science and topology of territory which seeks to rethink the concept of territory away from its historical fetishisation as mere space, tracing a trajectory which is also different from contemporary directions in geographical thinking wherein territory is assumed as an inert, static and merely extensive domain. Instead, with speculative craft and ingenious examples, Andrea Mubi Brighenti and Mattias Kärrholm foreground an understanding of territory that is able to account for its intensive, animated and becoming nature. This seminar aims to discuss the premises of the book within and beyond the current pandemic condition.

Speakers: • Andrea Mubi Brighenti (University of Trento) • Mattias Kärrholm (Lund University)

Discussants: • Andrea Pavoni (DINÂMIA'CET – ISCTE; Urban Transitions Hub) • Francisco Klauser (University of Neuchâtel)
