Sex in long term relationships

This blogspot was originally posted on Meg's blog, the 1st of December 2014.

Since Rewriting the Rules was published I sometimes get asked to do email interviews with journalists on various topics. Some of these get published in an edited form and some never see the light of day, so I thought I’d post some of the original interviews here.

Migrant mothers caring for the future and their creative interventions in making new citizens

In an ethnically ‘superdiverse’ Britain  Migrant mothers contribute to this shared future by bringing up a part of the future British citizenry.

Lost legacy: How 1989 marked the rise of environmental politics

In his LSE blogspot, Olaf Corry argues that Eastern European revolutions of 1989 did not just mark the defeat of the socialist utopian ideal but also the rise of new political ideas associated with political ecology: the physical and human limits to the modern expansionary project, people-powered politics and a growing global awareness. 1989 was a staging post in the relaunch of older concerns about resources and planetary limits, bringing a substantive critique of modernist ideas of untrammelled material expansion and state power into the history of European revolutions.

Climate Engineering and the Contraption Fallacy, by Olaf Corry

This blogspot was first posted on The Washington Geoengineering Consortium, on May 6, 2014.


Aerosols in the stratosphere, artificial trees or spraying sea water to whiten clouds – many consider climate engineering essentially to be a range of technologies designed to either extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or reflect more sunlight back out into space to counter global warming.
