Research in the Technological Natures cluster is developing new understandings of society, politics and publics through examining how nominally 'natural' processes and events come to be articulated through the matter and meaning of collective life. Among the central questions to which we are pursuing answers include: how do the material properties of physical processes and events (e.g. floods, resource exploration, and atmospheric change) participate in the fabrication of distinctive kinds of publics and politics? What roles do non-human things (e.g. animals, devices, objects) play in shaping and transforming collective life? And how do bodily and affective processes participate in the emergence of shared matters of political and ethical concern? In pursuing answers to such urgent questions, our work is distinguished by a two-fold commitment to: (a) developing novel conceptual resources, grounded in empirical research, for understanding the practices, devices, and techniques through which the natures of the worlds we inhabit are technologically articulated and; (b) contributing substantively to the re-imagining of politics, publics, and policies adequate to the complexity of these articulations. These commitments are informed by a distinctive disciplinary perspective - geography - which has long sought to unsettle any neat distinction between the natural and the technological. At the same time, the cluster also draws together staff expertise in anthropology, philosophy, and science and technology studies in order to pursue forms of inventive ethnographic research that employ rigorous experiment as a way of composing new sites of collaboration and participation.
