GGH 310 - Geography of Terrorism


This course provides an in-depth study of the geographical dimensions of terrorism and other related forms of violence.  While critically examining the variety of sociocultural and environmental factors most often influencing the occurrence and nature of this phenomenon in particular places and regions, the course also provides an introduction to the sub-field of political geography, which is ultimately concerned with the spatial dynamics of power.  International and global perspectives regarding concepts such as geopolitics, globalization, world-systems analysis, states, territory, boundaries, nationalism, identity, and terrorism itself are explored in order to gain a better understanding of different forms of power and expressions of politically motivated violence at various spatial scales.
