Abstract

In a desire to create a space of dialogue for scholars working at the interface of Geography and Science and Technology Studies we arranged a special paper session at the Annual International Conference of the Royal Geographical Society (with the Institute of British Geographers) in London. The session was entitled ‘Spatial Technologies/Technological Spaces’ and was held at the end of August 2005. It is interesting to quote here from our original call for papers, It is our intention that this session will contribute to the beginning of the complex and difficult task involved in a systematic analysis of the connections between geography and technology, such that the conceptual and methodological thresholds of this engagement can themselves be mapped. This vision of the project is important not because it indicates what we have been able to achieve in this Special Issue, but because it reveals some of the things that this collection of papers does not (and perhaps never could) accomplish.
