【Meet the People 3】James Thurgill

While historians tend to look at things from changes over time, geographers surveys differences–both obvious and subtle–over space. James is a geographer par excellence of the latter kind. Furthermore, his interests are of the second order. Rather than analyzing what is out there and providing his own interpretation of subtleties, James is concerned about the production of knowledge based on the observer’s spacial movement and the observer’s interaction with historical memory, which is embedded in the scenes that he walks through. In James’s analysis, therefore, the subjectivity of the observer is also examined. For this workshop too, he is interested in how each participant’s reacts to things located in the places we visit and how he interprets historical memory associated with these things. The following is his personal website where you can observe the glimpse of his thinking.
