Final Seminar

In about a week's time, the final seminar will take place.
This means that all manuscripts will be commented upon by an external opponent.
These manuscripts are the four papers:
I: the article published in Tijdschrift voor Economische en Sociale Geografie.
II: an article accepted for European Urban and Regional Studies.
III: a manuscript submitted to Population, Space and Place, after a second revision.
IV: a chapter in a book about Place and Identity.

As a synthesis of these four papers, I spent the first months of 2013 writing a Kappa, in which research design, theory and results are specified.

As usual, it was hard to find a longer period of time in which to write non-stop, since other projects evolved simultaneously:
- a course on Social Theory and Geography, with meetings in Uppsala (January), Lund (March) and Gotland (April). A paper for this course is due in June.
- a course on Quantitative Methods, with lectures or laboraties almost every Thursday in Örebro.
- an internet-course on information seeking, through Blackboard and at the University library in Örebro.

Last but not least, I was lucky enough to be accepted to present a paper (in the Bonaventure Hotel) at the annual conference of the Association of American Geographers, this year held in Los Angeles, in April.
