Critical Zone Science



“Graphy” because it is exactly the same problems as those well known in geography, but by shifting from geo to gaia we wish to underline that what is in question is first of all a set of processes, possesses some sort of agency, and is recalcitrant to usual forms of “scopic regimes”. – Bruno Latour
