A new paper written by Tim Schwanen looks at the relationship between research on sustainability transitions and the academic discipline of Human Geography and how the two fields could interact in the future. The article, an earlier version of which was presented at the Royal Geographical Society’s annual conference as a plenary lecture in 2016, shows how ideas from Geography have influenced transitions research and vice versa. The exchange between the two fields has been asymmetrical so far, with Human Geography adopting more ideas from Sustainability Transitions than in the opposite direction. The article shows ways that collaborative research between these subjects could be encouraged.
