Course ObjectivePolitical Geography course is designed to expose the students to the diverse and exciting field of political geography, which might be defined roughly as the spatial analysis of political phenomena. While based on political and geographical concepts, the course will focus throughout on real-life situations and contemporary issues at the local, regional, national, and global levels. The course covers a range of emerging topics from international political economy to the political dimensions of environmental changes. Yet, we will be studying how these broad and newly emerging topics bear upon many of the traditional research targets of political geographers: geopolitics, state sovereignty, nation and state, territoriality, migration, political boundaries, and power.
