Abstract

The recent “Forum on Political Geography in Question” (Volume 22, Issue 6, August 2003) (derived from papers presented at the 2002 Annual Meeting of the Association of American Geographers) raises a series of issues and challenges for political geographies. Similarly, Political Geography has also recently published a set of papers derived from another AAG session (held at the 2001 meeting in New York) entitled “Gendering the State”.....Here we want to reflect on something that runs through many of these diverse interventions; the issue of nomenclature, terminology and language used to designate the political and its geographies.
