Some of My Best Friends are Geographers
Geographers are so cool. You just don't see rhetoricians wearing hardhats on their department pages. And thanks to Governing Temptation for noting the theoretical contribution of the Virtualpolitik book to the study of social advertising and social advertising. The project is described as a "soft paternalism blog" from the Aberystwyth Department of Geography and Earth Studies. The team includes Rhys Jones, a cultural and historical geographer who works on the various geographies of the state and its related group identities, Mark Whitehead, who does research on the links between geography, philosophy and environmental politics, and Jessica Pykett, who studies "the changing nature of educational governance and pedagogical forms of state-citizen relations."
