About me

Political geography is a subfield of human geography largely focusing on territory, nations and states. Political geography differs somewhat from political science in that it employs a unique set of theoretical tools to explore the usefulness and the limitations of everyday concepts such as national-identity, citizen, territory, sovereignty, nature, environment, mobility and geopolitics. Key concepts such as territoriality, governmentality and legibility will be explained.


I can provide real historical and modern examples of how these theories operate and function in the real world. Case-studies include the Treaty of Westphalia, the Law of the Sea, borders/migration, the Spratly Island dispute, aspects of the former-Soviet Union and the history of the United States. You are also encouraged to provide your own cases or examples so we can work through the concepts together with something more relevant to your needs.
