A Research Agenda for Military Geographies

Elgar Research Agendas

Edited by Rachel Woodward, School of Geography, Politics and Sociology, Newcastle University, UK

A Research Agenda for Military Geographies explores how military activities and phenomena are shaped by geography, and how geographies are in turn shaped by military practices. A variety of future research agendas are mapped out, examining the questions faced by geographers when studying the military and its effects.

‘At once an inventory, history and programme for military geography, this collection will appeal to all scholars with a critical interest in militarism, war and alternatives to them. And for any geographers who consider their studies as unconcerned with military matters, it is an invitation to think again.’
– James D Sidaway, National University of Singapore

‘Assembled by perhaps the most pivotal figure in the geographic study of militaries and militarisation, these chapters offer provocative reflections and myriad lines of flight for future inquiry. The varied and exciting contributions, including those from several junior scholars, signal both the promise and the significance of the field.’
– Matthew Farish, University of Toronto, Canada
