Shifting Territory and Sovereignty: People, Place and Power – interview on Radio Northern Beaches

Shifting Territory and Sovereignty: People, Place and Power – interview on Radio Northern Beaches with Michael Lester, Not a great recording of my voice, but hopefully listenable.

in conversation with stuart elden, professor, political theory and geography, warwick university, uk, a specialist in the study of ‘territory’ as a ‘modern’ idea of’exclusive property ownership (his book “the birth of territory”) we explore the birth of the concept, its history and development on a global scale, and its bearing on understanding contemporary challenges to territorial sovereignty as illustrated by the war on terror, the middle east, and the displacement of indigenous cultures with their unique concepts of the relationships between people, place and power. The modern notion is historically produced and the discussion reflects the pluralism of ways of thinking about territory.
