New spatial technologies, new social practices: A critical theory of the geoweb 2013

Geography, GIScience, and society at large continue to grapple with the implications of newly emerging geospatial media – an ever-expanding range of interactive Internet and mobile technologies that enable collection, compilation, mapping, and dissemination of spatial data by vast numbers of people. The so-called ‘geoweb’ presents fundamental challenges for three or more decades of GIScience theory and practice developed in relation to conventional geographic information systems, and re-situates a number of the concerns of critical GIS scholars with regard to the societal significance of geospatial data and technologies. In this paper, I show how some of the longstanding concerns of critical GIS scholarship can illuminate several of the fundamental arenas of societal transformation stemming from the geoweb: Global and local social relations around privacy and surveillance, socio-technological practices of activism and civic engagement, and the education of citizens prepared to en...

New spatial technologies, new social practices: A critical theory of the geoweb 2013

Cities under siege: the new military urbanism 2013

It is now well established that both the "war on terror" and its descendents have been heavily constituted through highly urban discourses, materialities and practices. This lecture, which draws on a major book with the same title published recently by Verso, seeks to demonstrate that new ideologies of permanent and boundless war are radically intensifying the militarization of urban life in the contemporary period. The lectures delineates the ways in which contemporary processes of militarisation -- which surround what I label the "new military urbanism" -- raise fundamental questions for critical urban scholarship because of the ways in which they work to normalise the permanent targeting of everyday urban sites, circulations, and populations. Focusing primarily on US military security and military doctrine, culture and technology, this lecture explores the new military urbanism’s five inter-related foundations in detail. These are: the urbanisation of military and security doctr...

Cities under siege: the new military urbanism 2013

Erlanger Vortrag zur Kulturgeographie 2011 - War in the Borderlands 2013

Late modern war is increasingly fought in the borderlands, by which I mean to emphasize both conflicts in the shatter-zones of former empires and a blurring of the conceptual borders of war itself. In the wars fought by the United States and its allies in the early twenty-first century, models of late modern war bleed into one another. A primary purpose of this presentation is to explore this entanglements in the global borderlands. Close attention is paid to the combination of war from a distance the use of drones as weapons systems with the invasive intimacy of contemporary counterinsurgency; to the hybridization of military and intelligence operations through the pursuit of undeclared "shadow wars" in the borderlands; to the production of war economies at the intersection of a highly visible, nominally legitimate global economy with the circuits of a "shadow globalization", and to the imminent death of the figure of the civilian who is transformed into insurgent/terrorist or buri...

Erlanger Vortrag zur Kulturgeographie 2010 - The Emergence of Territory 2013

This lecture outlined a longer project on the history of the concept of territory. The first part suggests that territory needs to be related to, yet not reduced to, "land" and "terrain", which are political-economic and political-strategic relations. Territory needs to be additionally understood in terms of its relation to space, a calculative category that is dependent on the existence of a range of techniques, and political-legal questions. Territory then can be understood as a political technology: it comprises techniques for measuring land and controlling terrain, and we must therefore think measure and control-the technical and the legal-alongside the economic and strategic. The second part offers an account of a particular moment in the emergence of this concept; focusing on the bringing together of Greek political theory, Roman law, and German political practice, especially around the notion of Landeshoheit.
