Jonny is a cultural geographer whose current research explores the human–animal relations and weird ecologies of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, with a focus on dogs and wolves. He works closely with researchers GPS-tracking wolves and an NGO who live-streams dogs being fed in the zone. With Adam, he has ongoing projects investigating the live-streaming of urban peregrine falcons, digitised human-nature relations during quarantine, and digital encounter value.
Adam is a cultural and environmental geographer whose research explores the relationships between humans, other animals, and technologies. His interest in digital ecologies stems from recent work concerning the more-than-human geographies of lockdown life, including work on digital human-nonhuman encounters, webcam birdwatching, and online networks of wildlife imagery.
Henry’s work sits between cultural geography, the environmental humanities, and more-than-human geography. His current research examines: the conservation of polar bears in Svalbard; the scientific study of brown bears in Scandinavia; and the political ecologies of captive bears. He is particularly interested in the role of the digital, from GPS collars to documentary film, in shaping our encounters with non-human life and our imaginations of shared futures.
Pauline is a doctoral candidate at Sorbonne Université whose work bridges media studies, visual studies, the environmental humanities and more-than-human geography. She is particularly interested in the value of digital images of encounters between human, non-human life and moving cameras such as drones, in the shaping of symbolic life, digital ecologies, and uneven more-than-human geographies.
Jenny is a PhD student in cultural geography at the University of Oxford. Her research concerns the interconnections between digital media, political ecology, and perceptions of more-than-human rural landscapes. Her interest in digital ecologies stems from ongoing fieldwork concerning digital identities in the Lake District National Park on the social media platform Instagram.
Oscar is an environmental and cultural geographer at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford. He is interested in the practices and politics of environmental monitoring at the poles. His doctoral research investigates how assemblages of people, digital technologies, and animals have come to be configured as ‘early warning systems’ for polar environments, with a particular focus on the tracking and monitoring of seabirds.
