Inhalt This seminar deals with Europe and globalization as essentially processes of spatial and territorial restructuring. In the 1990s and during the years 2000s, both globalization critics and pro-globalization scholars forecasted the demise of the nation-state due to the development of borderless flows of capital and people (Hardt and Negri, 2001; Ohmae, 1995). The world seemed to be moving towards a deterritorialized global polity, where space and time were compressed and did not matter as much as at the time of triumphing nation-states. With the extension of processes of economic, social and political globalization, instead, it became clear that globalization entailed the restructuring, and not the demise, of the nation-state, of borders and of the spatial and territorial organization of political and social life (Brenner, 2004; Mezzadra and Neilson, 2013). European integration, with the creation of a space of free movement and circulation for its citizens and for goods and services, was at first read as an embryo of a post-national, deterritorialized political community. When the economic crisis hit North America and global markets first, and then, in 2010, the Eurozone, it became clear that globalization does not only produce a homogenous world space where borders can be overcome more easily, but that it also creates new forms of spatial inequalities, redefining the center and the periphery within continents and across the world. The elites’ responses to the crisis, with austerity measures, contributed to cutting the Eurozone space across North/South lines of division that reinforce boundaries, but also reshape spatial and social inequality in new ways across states and across Europe. In this seminar, we explore how globalization and European integration are better understood as the restructuring, in new, uneven ways, of space and territory across Europe and across world relations.
Lernziele Students:
- Learn about contemporary geographical and urban theories concerning globalization and the production of space;
- Acquire theoretical and empirical tools to study processes of regional and territorial restructuring;
- Study the social and geographical implications of the 2010 economic crisis for the political restructuring of Europe as an uneven space;
- Understand the correlation between regional and spatial policies and macro-phenomena such as European integration and globalization;
- Study the correlation between world socio-economic phenomena and European integration;
- Understand how markets and states produce space and territories in contemporary politics;
