Description

This course introduces graduate students to basic analytical tools and theoretical frameworks for exploring fundamental questions of political geography. We cover a wide range of substantive themes, drawing from literature in comparative politics, American politics, and international relations. Substantively, we discuss topics such as the relationship between spatial location and income groups, ethnic and racial groups, violence, and the location of workers, firms, and economic activity. We also examine the geographic basis of various political phenomena including sectionalism, regionalism, and political polarization. Methodologically, students will learn how to produce and analyze maps and utilize basic tools of spatial analysis.
