Globalisation and Geopolitics (L7031A)
Globalisation and Geopolitics
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 6
This interdisciplinary module explores the relevance of spatial relations in understanding world politics. It critically traces the history of the term geopolitics and its particular focus on the relationship between space and power. The module will examine key facets of contemporary globalisation, focusing on: states and markets; energy and resources; violence; and ethnicity and nationalism, amongst other important topics. This incorporates key theorists from political geography, international relations and political anthropology. Particular attention will be paid to the `geopolitical imagination¿, the variety of ways in which states and regions are represented in political discourse, media, the arts and academia itself.
