5. The Dept. of Geography Intersections Speakers' Series and the F. Ross Johnson Distinguished Speaker Series of the Centre for the Study of the United States, University of Toronto, co-present:

?The World is Not Flat: On Escaping Idiotic Geographies of Globalization?

Speaker:  Dr. Matthew Sparke, Professor of Geography and International
Studies at the University of Washington in Seattle

          Friday, September 22, 2006
          2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
          Sidney Smith Hall, room 2125

This presentation offers a critique of dominant imaginative geographies of
globalization.  In particular, it examines the influential example of
Thomas Friedman?s view that the world is flat. Showing how this
globalist vision  illustrates the totalizing neoliberal ideology of a
TINA-tout, the presentation also makes the case that the biopolitical
fashioning of this flat world imaginist geography must also be
understood in terms of the everyday practices and movements of the
business class.

Matthew Sparke is a Professor of Geography and International Studies
at the University of Washington in Seattle.
