New Release: Security & the Subsurface – Geopolitics

I am happy to announce that, as of today, I have a new article out in Geopolitics (currently in online early access). Entitled ‘Security & the Subsurface: Natural Gas and the Visualisation of Possibility Spaces’, this paper critically examines the ways in which the securing of the UK’s natural gas flows requires complex visualisation practices through which the subterranean movements of natural gas and its dynamic, transforming infrastructures are rendered visible and actionable. Instead of seeing energy infrastructures as rigid and more or less obstinate to change (a tendency within the energy politics literatures that has recently been critiqued by Haarstad & Wanvik, 2016), this paper highlights the dynamisms inherent to these networks, and the ways in which they give rise to different forms of risk that must be visualised and mitigated against in order to render such networks as safe and ‘secure’.
