Popular Geopolitics 2.0: Towards new methodologies of the everyday
Abstract
This paper argues for the renewal of popular geopolitics through the adoption of a research agenda that emphasizes everyday life. Popular geopolitics as commonly practiced has adopted a focus on textual deconstruction that neglects the practices and performances that mark much of the everyday experience of the geopolitical. This paper reviews the literature on feminist geopolitics, non-representational theory, and audience studies to find points of intersection between them. Following this a renewed popular geopolitics based on the common themes of embodiment, emotions/affect, performativity, and post-human networks is sketched out. It is hoped that this ‘popular geopolitics 2.0’ might allow scholars to truly engage with the everyday without trying to impose a new theoretical orthodoxy.
