Does the florescence of 'Public Geography' via digital media mask an institutional disconnect within the discipline? (16941)
The work of Kitchen et al through 'Dialogues in Human Geography' suggest that digital media presents the new frontier of geographical ecumenism with the wider community. This appears at odds with the 'kitchen table' narratives (Smith 2013) that provide a more measured and considered disciplinary Geography. The public nature of the discipline within New Zealand is represented through 'public' engagement by geographers in schools, universities, workplaces and governments that provide a lasting geographical inqusitivness that the ephemeral nature of the digital world fails to satisfy.
