Domesticating Geopolitics

Sean Carter (Editor), Tara Woodyer (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


This book explores the ways in which the study of the domestic and the international, far from being separate spheres, are in fact woven together in multiple ways. The chapters in this volume seek to question this traditional domestic/international binary and approach their entanglement through a range of different empirical settings and methodological approaches.

Inspired by a recent turn towards recognising the importance of the home, the intimate, and the everyday in the construction of geopolitical worlds, this book captures a broad range of agents, practices, objects, performativities and discourses that contribute to how geopolitics is rendered familiar, sanitised, embodied and enacted, and the ways in which ‘the home’ and the ‘traditional’ terrain of the geopolitical (the international sphere) are in fact folded into each other in multiple ways.

Domesticating Geopolitics will be of great use to students and researchers interested in geography and politics including popular geopolitics and human geography. This book was originally published as a special issue of Geopolitics.
