Geography: State of the Field

Neil Brenner, Presentation at a panel discussion on “Geography: the State of the Field,” Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University.

(Note: Brenner presentation begins at: 55:48)

Geography is a problematique—a set of questions about the production of space in the modern world.  It facilitates a critique of inherited sociospatial assumptions and an ongoing search for theories, categories and methods that might illuminate ongoing processes of sociospatial transformation.
