Popular geopolitics is a subfield of geopolitics, which studies how cultural products intervene in the pre-existing geopolitical practices. Most of the popular geopolitics literature has focused on the scale of the state and how popular culture influences ideas of nationalism. The papers in this session are investigating different scales, multiple media forms, and those that push past the Anglo-American centric analyses that have dominated the subdiscipline.
