Book review symposium: [Un]Grounding

reviewed by Joe Blakey, Matina Kapsali and Nicola Guy

This review symposium brings together three scholars who draw attention to key contributions of the book, while also putting forward critiques and questions to the editors. 

In response, Friederike Landau-Donnelly, Lucas Pohl and Nikolai Roskamm nicely highlight how ‘living in post-foundational times means to wrestle with uncertainty’, and return to some of the book’s key contributions and aims and begin thinking towards a more plural (geographical) post-foundationalism.
