Abstract

This chapter reviews what it means for political geography to become more than representational. After setting out the key propositions of the more-than-representational agenda, it focuses on three major themes and their significance for political geography: affects and emotions, socio-material assemblages and the methodological implications of presenting/presencing more-than representational research. It concludes with four central questions to orient further research: 1) What is the politics of the more-than-representational? 2) How are the representational and the more-than-representational tied together? 3) How do we move from the micro to the macro? 4) How can we do justice to the vitality of matter?

Keywords: affects, emotions, bodies, embodiment, materials, assemblages, practices, socio-material networks, performativity, non-representational theory (NRT)
