GEOG 2010 Political Geography 3/0/3

A foundations course which looks at the basis of political territory, international law and boundaries-both on the land and on the sea. This course identifies basic geopolitical units and their geographical expression--including states, nation states and supranational territories--and identifies the rules that govern sovereignty, territorial definition and international interactions at the borders. Special attention is given to the concept of nationalism and its role in redefining the contemporary global map.
