  • Cartography ; Communication ; Map ; Power
  • Two developments in cartography mark an epistemic break with the assumption that maps are unproblematic communication devices. These are 1) investigations of maps as practices of power-knowledge, and 2) geographic visualization which uses the map's
  • power to explore, analyze and visualize spatial datasets to understand patterns better. These developments are key components of a maps as social constructions approach, emphasizing the genealogy of power in mapping practices, and enabling multiple

  • This paper makes a case for understanding air power through the lens of police. After first rethinking a key period in the history of air power (colonial bombing campaigns) as a police mechanism, the paper then moves to consider the impoverished
  • conception of war and police in contemporary critical theory. The final section turns to perhaps the most pressing issue in current air power debates, namely drones, and suggests that a consideration of air power as police power helps us read drones

  • Power and contingency in planning
  • Contingency ; Planning ; Post-structuralism ; Power ; System
  • This paper analyses the role and reception of poststructuralist perspectives on power in planning since the 1990s. It makes a distinction between the power of planning (the impact in society), power in planning (relations between players active
  • in planning), and power on planning (the influence of broader society on the planning system), to refine the analysis of planning/power. It is argued that an interpretation of Deleuze, Luhmann, and Foucault, as thinkers of power in a theoretical framework
  • that is based on the idea of contingency, can help to refine the analysis of power in planning. Planning then can be regarded as a system in other systems, with roles, values, procedures, and materialities in constant transformation, with the results of each
  • Nuclear power in Western Europe
  • The importance of electrical energy to the European economy is discussed before attention is focused on the spatial and temporal aspects of nuclear power production between 1956 and 1990. It is demonstrated how the diffusion of nuclear power
  • in western Europe is being affected by public unrest over certain environmental and safety problems. The need for some kind of energy policy is emphasized. Despite efforts to stress the importance of nuclear power to the energy economy, a lack of integration

  • Toponymy has to be reexamined in light of human geography's recent philosophical and theoretical emphasis on power and language. The example of Zanzibar's Ng'ambo neighborhoods is used to show how toponymy and boundary-making embody a complex

  • The A. seeks a more comprehensive mapping of the experience of time-space in late modernity. Building on Massey's notion of power geometry, he integrates discussions of time-space with an application of different understandings of power

  • that tease out the double contingencies of the social relations that underlie power. Refinements are shown to be possible by learning, in particular, from approaches to analysing power elsewhere in the social sciences, and particularly from management studies
