1 - 2 weeks availability
International Politics and Film introduces readers to the representational qualities of film but also draws attention to how the relationship between the visual and the spatial is constitutive of international politics. Using four themes-borders, the state of exception, homeland and distant others-the territorial and imaginative dimensions of international affairs in particular are highlighted. But this volume also makes clear that international politics is not just something "out there"; film helps us better understand how it is also part of everyday life within the state-affecting individuals and communities in different ways depending on axes of difference such as gender, race, class, age, and ethnicity.
Sean Carter is senior lecturer in human geography at the University of Exeter, UK. His work on the relationship between geopolitics and visual culture has been published in leading international journals including Political Geography. Klaus Dodds is Professor of Geopolitics at Royal Holloway, University of London. He is the author of The Antarctic: A Very Short Introduction (2012) and co-editor of Polar Geopolitics: Knowledges, Legal Regimes and Resources (2013) and The Ashgate Research Companion to Critical Geopolitics (2013).
