This series of two panels aims to celebrate the career and scholarship of Jody Emel on the occasion of her retirement from the Graduate School of Geography at Clark University. Jody's contributions to nature-society geography are wide ranging empirically including groundbreaking work on water, mining, and animal geographies. More broadly we note two major hallmarks of her approach to research: (1) a willingness to embrace eclecticism and to follow processes where they lead, rather than staying within any fixed framework, whether it be political economic, feminist or poststructural, for instance; (2) her continual insistence on pragmatism and policy relevance; and that we be more than critics, illustrated by her oft-repeated interrogation: “what’s the point?" These panels will allow many of Jody's students and collaborators to reflect on her influence as a mentor and on the field more broadly.
