DHP P280: Eurasia: Geopolitics, Religion, and Security

Course Description

This course explores the intersection of geography, religion, and security in the trans-regional, trans-continental space of Eurasia.

The course has three parts: an introduction to theories of classical and critical geopolitics; an introduction to the origins of Eurasia as a geographic and cultural space, where religion figures prominently in competing geographies of power and identity; and, a review of key cases that give comparative purchased into the religion-security nexus in Eurasia.
