State

  1. 1. The territorial state
  2. 2. How do we imagine states?In particular buildings? Symbols? The organization and use of force?
  3. 3. This assumes the state ‘as thing’.We can point to it, locate it, in definite spaces. But what are the limits to thisline of thinking? How does this method make it challenging to study the geography of ‘the state’?
  4. 4. But, where is the state? We know the state is effectuated and evidenced in a series ofpolices, programs, laws, codes, and norms--so where do we place it?
  5. 5. Painter’s ‘stateness’Appears and reappears in arange of policies, practices, and approaches far fromsites of instrumental power.
  6. 6. Prosaic: pro·sa·ic  1.Having the style or diction of prose; lacking poetic beauty.2.Commonplace; unromantic.
  7. 7. Prosaics, or, The everyday❖ We are looking for the state in most basic iterations--no statues, cathedrals, or monuments.❖ How does the state creep in to influence the way regular people interact, move, buy, sell, shop, eat, build, drive, and live?
  8. 8. Imaging Stateness The Federal Identity Program creates a unified look andfeel--a brand--for everything associated with the Canadian federal government.
