Cross-currents and undertows : a response.

Steinberg, Philip and Peters, Kimberley (2019) 'Cross-currents and undertows : a response.', Dialogues in human geography., 9 (3). pp. 333-338.


In our response, we address two themes that appear in several of the commentaries. First, we elaborate on our decision to maintain a focus on the ocean, rather than turning to a term that speaks more clearly to geographic categories (e.g. the sea), elemental foundations (e.g. water), earth-system processes (e.g. the hydrosphere). Secondly, we address the critique that, in our effort to highlight the ocean’s geophysical liveliness, we may overlook the ocean’s liveliness as a space continually made through human and more-than-human encounters, cultural understandings and histories.
