‘Geography and Politics Redux?‘ – open access virtual theme issue of Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers, edited by Richard Powell.
It includes my 2005 piece ‘Missing the point: globalization, deterritorialization and the space of the world‘.
That piece took a long time to come together, and I gave talks on the topic some years before. It also, as I recall, took a while to appear in print after acceptance. It was one of the first places that I tried to develop a theory of territory, and set the scene for much of what I went on to do since. As Richard generously says in a note to his introduction, “This paper forms the embryonic outline of the argument that was recently used in Elden’s magnum opus, The birth of territory (2013)”.
There are several great papers in this issue, all freely available for the next twelve months.
