GEOG 288 - Political Geography

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
This course explores fundamental concepts of space and politics, helping us to deepen our understanding of how a geographic or spatial lens enriches the study of the political world. In the class, we look at political-economic processes of globalization, the relationship between the nation-state and markets, and the various ways that politics and spatial scales interact, are mutually constituted, and reproduced. Concepts of ‘the global,’ locality, nationalism, borders, scale, hegemony, and geopolitics are paired with case studies from history and from the present day. Evan Casper-Futterman.

Two 75-minute periods.
