Exploring the New World Order

  1. 1. Alan Parkinson #TMGeographyIcons21 Exploring the New World Order
  2. 2. Why a ‘new world’?
  3. 3. Our World in Data - Coronavirus update https://ourworldindata.org/covid-vaccinations
  4. 4. New PC Geographies - over a year in the writing V11.0 About 200 pages https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WEuZiEy dbcxmBOs0lfs0_2_vzwIX-OLGljw-SS-M4UU/edi t?usp=sharing
  5. 5. David Wolman - Wired piece https://www.wired.com/story/amid-pandemic-geography-returns-with-a-vengeance/ THE PANDEMIC IS redefining our relationship with space. Not outer space, but physical space. Hot spots, distance, spread, scale, proximity. In a word: geography. Suddenly, we can’t stop thinking about where.
  6. 6. Since World War II, the typical date of Phoenix’s first 100-degree studying has shifted earlier by about three weeks, backing up from May 17 to April 28. On the tail finish of the season, 100-degree days are sticking round about 10 days later. Heating up...

  13. 13. Census 2021 But this census will nonetheless bestow much-needed clarity on a society buffeted by the pandemic. Uncertainty about how many people are actually living in the UK right now – let alone where exactly they live – is higher this year than it has been for many decades. It’s thought that over a million people left the country in 2020 who would not normally have left, but we don’t know how many really did and if they left for good. This has serious implications for the allocation of funding across regions. More importantly still, the 2021 census will provide a clearer picture of the inequalities that have come to light since the beginning of the pandemic. The isolation of the elderly, the suffering in old industrial wards, and the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on BAME communities will all be better illustrated and contextualised by this census. http://www.dannydorling.org/?p=8252

  15. 15. “Unspecified carnage”
  16. 16. Curriculum changes to reflect these changes?
  17. 17. Writing the world “An hour spent reading is an hour spent learning to write” - Robert MacFarlane
  18. 18. Geography and Relevance John Allan Patmore - 1931-2018
  19. 19. "Geography teaches an appreciation and understanding of the landscape around us and of those landscapes beyond our personal experience. It teaches both a knowledge and a sense of place, the basic knowledge of the theatre of the world on which mankind acts out its days. It teaches the dimensions of reality and, far more important, the concerns which underlie the character and the quality of our continuing existence.”
  20. 20. “Geography is a subject, above all, of both head and heart. With rigour and precision of technique and concept we seek to measure, to describe and understand the mechanisms which dictate the shifting patterns of the occupancy of earth. But earth is home, shot through with beauty and with squalor, opportunity and despair. We cannot be detached from home: our attempted understanding of its face is quickened by our wonder in its delights and our concern for its condition: in wonder and in concern, as much as in understanding, is the mark of relevance in geography." J Allan Patmore
  21. 21. And a reminder of the power of geography... “Politicians are important, but geography is more so. The choices people make now, and in the future, are never separate from their physical context… Geography is not fate - humans get a vote in what happens - but it matters.” Tim Marshall
