‘Popular geopolitics’ considers films, magazines, television, the Internet, and radio and the way in which they contribute to the circulation of geopolitical images and representations of territory, resources, and identity. One area of particular interest is post-9/11 cinema and television, and the manner in which screen plays and scripts have embraced the politics of fear, hope, and anger. Do films such as The Kingdom (2007) and the television series Homeland offer us important insights into how geopolitics is imagined and practised? New media forms, such as the internet and associated practices such as blogging and podcasting, will command increasing attention from those interested in popular geopolitics.
