GEOG 128
Geography of International Affairs



In this lesson, we focus upon the geopolitics of networks. After discussing the term meta-geography and its connection to the geopolitics of globalization, we will further delve into a geopolitical perspective on transnational social movements as well as terrorism. We end with thinking about how these concepts apply to our selected country of research.
