Geography, the AAG, and the military – Joel Wainwright

I just received word from Joel that Antipode have published an intervention of his: ‘“A remarkable disconnect”: On violence, military research, and the AAG’. The piece discusses the lack of collective discussion around the militarization of geography, and the U.S. military’s own ‘geographic turn’.

Meanwhile the US military is busily rebranding ‘human geography’ as the way to know where to put ‘boots on the ground’. And among us critical geographers: a mass of undisciplined, apathetic grumbling. A remarkable disconnect, indeed.
