Abstract

The term ‘landscapes of care’ has increasingly taken hold in the lexicon of health geography. As the complex social, embodied and organizational spatialities that emerge from and through relationships of care, landscapes of care open up spaces that enable us to unpack how differing bodies of geographical work might be thought of in relationship to each other. Specifically, we explore the relation between ‘proximity’ and ‘distance’ and caring for and about. In doing so, we seek to disrupt notions of proximity as straightforward geographical closeness, maintaining that even at a physical distance care can be socially and emotionally proximate.
