  • ‘No life here:’ the effects of motion picture incentive on below the
           line labor in Hollywood South

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In 2002, Louisiana was one of the first states to begin a motion picture incentive (MPI) program to lure film and television production away from Los Angeles. Today, Louisiana, and especially its media capital, New Orleans, has been described as “Hollywood South,” a prominent North American film and television production center. This satellite production center is the outcome of a trend in local and national governments to use MPI programs to encourage the outsourcing of labor from Los Angeles since the mid-1990s. Using in-depth interviews with location managers in Louisiana, a review of policy documents, and an analysis of public discourse around the phenomenon in Louisiana, we examine the geography of Hollywood South, focusing on local labor and the consequences, efficacy, and ethics of its MPI program.

  • Human–wildlife tourism conflict: towards an inclusive wildlife resources
           utilisation approach in southern Africa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The study examines wildlife tourism and local community livelihoods conflict in three southern African countries. The study incorporates the concept of community inclusiveness to reinvigorate wildlife utilisation research through qualitative interpretive methodologies. Despite the wildlife tourism sector`s multi-billion dollar status, local communities living adjacent to wildlife sanctuaries still suffer deprivation and significant need. Findings further suggested that local communities have been pushed to the periphery of the wildlife tourism value chain; and attempts to meaningfully benefit from wildlife tourism have been curtailed by a combination of institutional barriers and inflexible Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species’ contemporary wildlife utilisation regime. Additionally, community voices on matters of wildlife tourism policy formulation and its inclusive use remain suppressed. It was concluded that contemporary wildlife tourism utilisation frameworks are not a shining example of community poverty alleviation strategies in the context of southern Africa; hence a root and branch shake up of the models is recommended.

  • Refugee resettlement in the American midwest in challenging times

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The practice of refugee resettlement in the United States has been altered significantly by the policies of the Trump administration, which were driven by white nationalist and neoliberal ideologies that view refugees as a burden to the state’s welfare system and pose a security threat to the country’s citizens. Using the case of refugee resettlement agencies that serve refugees from Somalia in the Midwestern cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul in Minnesota and Garden City in Kansas, the paper seeks to understand how refugee resettlement agencies have been affected by, and responded to the challenges posed by the policies of the Trump administration. The paper argues that the policies have created a hostile environment within which to resettle refugees, with devastating impacts on refugee resettlement into the local communities. With their survival under threat, refugee resettlement agencies have turned to local communities for support in order to survive the challenging times.

  • Conflicting fields: a Bourdieuian guide to The King of New York

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abel Ferrara’s 1990 film King of New York, and specifically the film’s transgressive use of The Plaza Hotel, presents a unique way to see the restructuring of the social and economic order via Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory. Contextualizing the New York City landscape as a personification of a capitalist social and economic order from which its characters have literally and metaphorically profited turns King of New York in a cinematic space where differing fields ‘battle’ for the ultimate prize of control over these fields. With this in mind, we can see through Pierre Bourdieu’s field theory how Ferrara reinscribes the relationship between space, social organization, and capitalist economics within the cinematic spaces of the film.

  • The inner frontier. Images of the USA in recent Western cinema
           (2000–2020)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: At the heart of the American western cinema lies the myth. And the western myth is closely linked to the frontier, that boundary between civilization and wilderness that is constantly being negotiated. The frontier mythology is an integral part of scholarly writing on the western, and especially works well with the classical western of the studio era, where the dichotomy of wilderness and civilization had been considered the key to the genre. The following study will go back to the original term frontier, Frederick Jackson Turner’s concept of frontier mythology and Matthias Waechter’s re-reading of this mythology, and will seek for a new angle to discuss recent westerns in the light of current events. This is necessary as most of the exemples may look like westerns, but most of them are only told in the mode of a western or use the classical form and iconography to aim for something different than in earlier decades. Genre cinema has become more of a discourse today which is not created according to a classical formula any more. This article takes this fact into account and will furthermore show that the outer boundary between civilization and wilderness is turned inward in films of the last decade: This means that the ‘stranger’ is part of the self, the abject lurks in one’s own forests and mountains–or in one’s own micro-society, even if films are only told in Western mode, such as the crime thriller ‘Wind River’ (2017) by Taylor Sheridan.

  • Bearing witness through pandemic borders and film: convergent media,
           mobility and Windrush Betrayal

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper examines the role of convergent media and the film, Windrush Betrayal (2020), in representing and challenging borders, mobilities and UK government immigration policies. Print and digital news provide important contexts for exploring media geographies of current events. Documentary film is also a provocative medium for investigative analyses that go beyond more general headline reporting. This study seeks to expand on earlier studies by examining how complementary mediums such as digital news media and film can respond to each other and become part of dynamic transnational conversations around place and identity. Media formats have been pushed to incorporate new settings and styles as Covid-19 restrictions have been implemented and alternative approaches utilised in media production. Adopting innovative techniques for filming in response to pandemic restrictions, Windrush Betrayal illustrates the ongoing impacts of immigration policies on Caribbean Diaspora populations in the UK. This paper provides a timely opportunity to tease out the ways in which changes in government immigration policies, media work practices and the production of migration narratives can highlight hidden geographical stories and marginalised voices.

  • Refugees re-making community: on the performativity of participatory video

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper illustrates the performative nature of participatory video (PV), drawing on JL Austin’s well-known work on speech acts, utterances, and performative sentences, as well as Butler’s reworking and application of the notion of performativity. During recent research I used PV as a method. Sub-Saharan African refugee research participants who had not known each other before the PV project negotiated issues to be filmed and made a short film together, creating a small community where none existed before, who are taking steps to organize collective action. The emergence of this new community in and through the making of the film during the fieldwork illustrates the performativity of PV, what is accomplished in and through its making. This performativity works not only through people who take part in creating a video, distributing the video, and watching the video, but also may have effects on people who have never seen the given video, as they are in a landscape and embedded in social relations affected by people who took part in it or saw it. PV is thus both a way of gathering data to learn about the world, and it also is involved in changing it, bringing forth new relationships and new ways of being.

  • Towards a multimethod approach for film geography: a case study of Los
           Angeles’ Nate Starkman Building

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This paper introduces a multi-method approach for Film Geography that intertwines spatial analysis, cartography, textual analysis, discourse analysis, field research, and expert interviews. Historically, film studies has focused on textual analysis whereas geography has emphasized the material aspect of space through field research. However, if cinema is a double ontology of image and industry film geographers must engage with both to make a meaningful contribution to the complex interwoven discourses on cinematic space. This case study focuses on the Nate Starkman Building, a frequently filmed warehouse located in the Arts District of Los Angeles, California. This case study acts as an example of how a multi-method approach can be applied to on-location filming. I demonstrate how the methods can be combined to contextualize and pinpoint previously invisible interactions between the on-screen appearance and the cultural politics of film production and placemaking. I argue that film-geographic analysis allows for a more in-depth look into the Hollywood-machinery that has led to these unique socio-economic structures.

  • De-imaging New York: cognitive mapping and the city symphony

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Kevin Lynch’s Image of the City is central to film studies, where cognitive mapping is often used to position screen depictions of cities in terms of genre affiliation, urban development, and subject formation. However, Lynch’s model affirms that to image the city is to possess it, and that representation is an activity undertaken by human observers of a place rather than integral to places themselves. It is, in the end, a model fully aligned with—and one that naturalizes—the capitalist (re)development of the city and the role that commercial cinema plays in this process. The city symphony is closely associated with Lynchian mapping, but I argue such films articulate an alternative to it, one in keeping with Jameson’s model of the location and coming to consciousness of the subject within ideology. City symphonies depict a day in the life of an urban environment, combining unities of time, space, and theme with rapid and complex montage. I show how Seeing the World pt 1: A Trip to New York (Burckhardt, 1937) uses a doubled structure to insist on New York as a place constructed (rather than perceived) by the images and representational strategies of its planners, inhabitants, visitors, and visual cultures, including cinema. By invoking and then mocking established itineraries through the city while pointing to the constructed nature of these itineraries as well as the city itself, Burckhardt’s film performs a new kind of cognitive mapping, one that dispenses with the image of the city.

  • Representing transborder communities: Yolanda Cruz and Reencuentros

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Our examination of the documentary film Reencuentros: 2501 migrantes (translated as 2501 Migrants: A Journey) contributes to scholarship connecting film geographies to critical geopolitics, accounting for affect, and attending to documentary films. We augment this literature with the concepts of Indigenous geopolitics and decolonial affect. After an abridged introduction to Yolanda Cruz, the Chatina filmmaker from Oaxaca, Mexico who made Reencuentros, we interpret her film’s representation of transborder communities in Indigenous regions of Oaxaca at the turn of the twenty-first century. We then illustrate the film’s affective logic by detailing what the film moved us—and others—to do in Oklahoma. We conclude by recognizing how friction has stalled the impetus sparked by Yolanda’s film and hoping that this article might incite impulsion anew.

  • Geopolitics of water securitisation in Central Asia

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Over the years ensuring water securitisation in Central Asia is assuming geopolitical dimensions. Historical experiences, the rapid industrialisation and diversification of agricultural practices along with the pattern of water distribution in the Central Asian space rooted in historical trajectories to a greater extent are some of the factors contributing to the dynamics of water insecurity in Central Asia. It needs to be underlined here that though Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan constitute the upstream countries but their dependence on gas from Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and Kazakhstan to a greater extent limits the “hydro-hegemony” model. However, the same model can be applied in the context of China–Kazakhstan water dispute over sharing the river Ili. At the same time, what one witnessed over some time is the proliferation of identity-based primordial conflict largely accentuated due to sharing of scarce water resources. This is aptly visible in the Ferghana region of Central Asia where three Central Asian countries—Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan–Uzbekistan—share a common border along with water bodies also. The existence of the contested geopolitical space, climate change, competition over scarce resources like water and its impact on human security are some of the factors responsible for aggravating the insecurity of Central Asia. In this regard, the existing regional mechanisms also need to be strengthened which to a substantial extent address the issue of the water crisis in a more holistic manner.

  • Forced governmentality: from technology to techne

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: ‘Success replaces legitimacy’ (Foucault, 2004). This assertion serves as the premise for this paper, exploring corporations that accept responsibility—or are being forced to take responsibility—for certain public issues because they are successful and, therefore, are seen as legitimate actors in the defence of individual rights in the digital age. Specifically, this paper extends the theoretical utility of applying a Foucauldian perspective of governmentality to the corporation, as set out in Collier and Whitehead’s (2021) Corporate Governmentality: Building the Empirical and Theoretical Case. In particular we seek to extend one of the Collier and Whitehead’s proposed typologies: forced governmentality. Using the Foucauldian analytical language of governmentality, it is possible to illuminate aspects of corporate governmental ambition that were previously unavailable through the current discourses. The crux of the issue consists of modern technologies that create governmental problems but are governed by the companies that created them. Consequently, the private sector actors that contribute to the creation technological problems are being forced to manage related action spaces. Using Facebook as a case study, this paper identifies the characteristics of forced governmentality through a critical reading of Mark Zuckerberg’s Blueprint for Content Governance and Enforcement.

  • Residential burglary and concentrated disadvantage: A spatial
           heterogeneity analysis in Mexico City

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Previous empirical studies on the correlation between residential burglary and concentrated disadvantage (CD) in Latin America commonly omit the spatial elements of the relationship. Using Mexico City (CDMX) residential burglary data for the period 2016 to 2018, we examine the predictive capacity of concentrated disadvantage in relation to residential burglary patterns, using a Geographically Weighted Regression approach to check whether their correlation varies across CDMX police quadrants. Controlling for relevant structural variables associated with residential burglary in previous studies, we find that the relationship between CD and residential burglary is positive in 844 out of 846 police quadrants (99.7%) and significantly much steeper in some quadrants than others –up to four times the median local slope. Thus, one key implication is that as this relationship is affected by spatial heterogeneity, traditional regression-to-the-mean analyses may misinform evidence-based crime prevention policies.

  • Feminist geopolitics, cinema, and the sensible encounter in American
           Sniper

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This article employs a critical feminist geopolitical frame to analyze American Sniper, a film focused on US military intervention. This approach is especially useful to unpack the spatial, temporal, and political nuances that shape and are shaped by power relations, intimate domains, and discursive and ontological fields beyond the rigid demarcation of sovereign states. American Sniper allows us to situate the nexus of US foreign policy and public perceptions of political events within and beyond US borders. We counter dominant, masculine representational systems within this film through an exploration of the film’s presentation of military and humanitarian interventions vis-à-vis racialized tropes, Orientalist assumptions, and differing scales of difference between viewers and events onscreen. In particular, we define and deploy a type of critical feminist geopolitical frame, the sensible encounter—an active exchange of knowledge and affect between viewer and film—as a way to explore agency and decolonize the politics represented onscreen.

  • Doing film geography

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Film geography as a subdiscipline of cultural and media geography is a long-established field of research that since its emergence more than twenty years ago has diversified into a variety of perspectives. Nowadays, a critical perspective on film is central, which no longer considers the medium merely as a text, but rather as a social practice—a perspective that continues to focus not solely on the meaning of representations, but on what representations do and how they do it. Following Roberts’ (in: Edensor, Kalandides, Kothari (eds) The Routledge handbook of place, Routledge, London, 2020) call for ‘doing film geography,’ this introductory article to the Geojournal Special Issue on Film Geography provides an overview of current trends in the field as well as an overview of the essays included in this collection. In addition to the established film-as-text perspective, we examine the burgeoning research in cinematic cartography, film industry geographies, and videography/documentaries.

  • Film. Geography: stirring still remains

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Inspired by the distinction that Gilles Deleuze drew between the ‘movement-image’ and the ‘time-image,’ the paper considers the ‘film’—the ‘skin’—of ‘film geography,’ not in terms of the customary geography of film, the geography in film, or the geography from film, but rather in terms of geography as film, a literal ‘film’ geography or ‘filmic’ geography. To get under the skin of film geography, the paper proceeds in three parts. The first part shatters the conception of film as a re-presentation. The second touches a raw nerve by channelling the power of the false. The third splits open and unfolds the two faces of film, namely the ‘movement-image’ and the ‘time-image.’ By way of conclusion, the paper ends its flaying of film geography with a ‘stirring still’ taken from Michael Madsen’s (2010) Into Eternity: A Film for the Future, which documents the construction of Onkalo, the world’s first deep-geological nuclear-waste disposal facility that must remain undisturbed for at least 100,000 years once the tomb is sealed in the early twenty-second century.

  • Understanding intra-urban inequality in networked water supply in Wa,
           Ghana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract Extant studies on urban water access in African cities have mainly explained inequalities from the socio-economic and political perspectives. However, the material dimension of water supply has received little attention in the literature, though it is central in urban water supply. This paper examined how physical infrastructure artifacts and properties shape water access in Wa, Ghana. To understand the spatial dynamics, the study applied intra-urban comparative approaches to systematically analyze and compare networked water infrastructure across four different socio-economic neighbourhoods within the city. Data were collected through document reviews, in-depth interviews with utility officials and customers of the water company in Wa. The study reveals important differences across the four neighbourhoods that were studied, in respect of the extent of physical network coverage and the technical qualities of principal mains. The study concludes that both the physical and technical properties of water supply networks influence the distribution of piped water supply in Wa. Our case study emphasizes the agency of material objects in shaping water access in cities, which thereby takes the analysis of inequalities in water access beyond simple socio-economic and political narratives.

  • The flight of Icarus: on the geopolitical resonances of documentary film

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract This paper considers how documentary films have the potential to influence geopolitics. Developing the concept of geopolitical resonances—defined here as the ways in which popular media can determine events and outcomes in global politics—the paper argues that Bryan Fogel’s 2017 documentary Icarus has instrumentally shaped understandings of the Russian doping regime at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. Icarus is considered through the Author-Text-Reader model of film analysis, with an emphasis on the agency of the director, the content of the film, and its influence and reception. More broadly, documentaries are one of suite of oppositional formats that serve as the basis for the reconsideration of the formation of geopolitical cultures and narratives.

  • Assessment of livelihood vulnerability in the riparian region of the Tista
           River, West Bengal, India

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract The Tista floodplain is one of the major food baskets of North Bengal and is sensitive to a multitude of issues regarding vulnerability. The riparian areas and the river island or charland of the lower Tista River basin in India, specifically from Sevoke to the Indo-Bangladesh border, generally suffer due to flood-prone, river course shifting, limited livelihood activities, low adaptive capacity, and poor accessibility. The present work is conducted to assess the livelihood vulnerability based on the livelihood vulnerability index (LVI) framework of the agriculture-dependent riparian villages and the charlands of the River Tista in the Jalpaiguri district. Total 337 households of five villages from the Mal and Maynaguri block at the left bank of the Tista River were selected to conduct the field survey. The livelihood vulnerability was assessed based on eight major components (viz., socio-demographic profile, health condition, livelihood strategies, food support, water support, climatic variability, flood hazards, and social safety) and 42 sub-components. The three contributing factors, i.e., adaptive capacity, sensitivity, and exposure, have been combined to calculate the livelihood vulnerability employing the LVI and LVI-IPCC methodologies. The outcome of the study exhibit that LVI scored highest in Premganj Majhiali (0.436), followed by Basusuba (0.403), Uttar Marichbari (0.349), Domohani (0.335), and Chat Rarpur village (0.328). According to the LVI-IPCC results, Basusuba has the most vulnerability (0.015), whereas Domohani has the least (0.007). In terms of flood hazard, variations were noticed based on increasing distance from the river. Lack of adaptive capacity prevailed in the villages with significant flooding events. Building awareness of the inhabitants will be an effective way to improve the adaptive capacity of the rural villagers. Therefore, giving priority to the policies depending on the natural environment of the active flood-prone region would make long-term sustainability.

  • Cosmopolis: public spaces, cosmopolitanism, and democracy

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Abstract What is the role of public spaces in contemporary cities' Despite the growing interest in the theme of public spaces in the last decades, a significant number of authors appeal, directly or indirectly, to ideas of the “regression”, “decay”, and “crisis” of public life, public sphere, and public spaces. Without disregarding this hegemonic point of view, in the present article we would like to consider other perspectives, which recognize the importance of public spaces, public sociability, and cosmopolitanism for the democratic societies in the context of the contemporary city, the cosmopolis. We therefore propose a bibliographic review that deals with the political nature of public spaces, the dimension of contestation within public sociability, the advent of virtual public spaces, and the geography of cosmopolitan encounters. The article concludes that urban public spaces remain essential for the existence and functioning of democratic societies and institutions.
