Listen to Professor Stuart Elden's talk 'From Territorium to Territory'

Professor Stuart Elden from the University of Durham recently visited CCIG to talk about his latest book project on the history of the concept of territory as part of Forum 14.

This talk will be of great interest to geographers, political theorists and those working in international relations. The presentation asks the question: What is the Latin word for ‘territory’? How should we translate territorium?  In thinking through this problematic Professor Elden raises a number of questions around  the often taken for granted term 'territory', which in turn unsettles contemporary debates that utilise the term.
