Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Translating political geographies

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.
