I don’t normally write for academic audiences, but after I spoke at the annual conference of the Geographical Association, I was invited to adapt my talk for their journal. It was a bit of a learning curve submitting a paper to a peer-reviewed journal, not least because the online submission process is not set up for writers unaffiliated to a particular university. I got there in the end, it was accepted, and it was published in the Autumn 2021 issue.

My article is called The colour of climate change: making the racial injustice of climate change visible, and it’s about the ways that the planet is visually represented, and how it creates a Eurocentric vision of the earth that obscures the unequal impacts of climate change.
