The following is a list of publications arising from this and related projects. My other publications can be found here.
Peer-reviewed journal articles
- Mahony, M. (2016) For an empire of ‘all types of climate’: meteorology as an imperial science. Journal of Historical Geography 51: 29-39
- Mahony, M. (2016) Picturing the future-conditional: montage and the global geographies of climate change Geo: Geography and Environment. 3(2), e00019
- Although not a direct output from this project, this piece contains some relevant material about the historical genealogy and contemporary persistence of certain ways of thinking about climate, place and difference.
