This project investigates the relationship between spatial theory and questions of life. In particular it looks at this relationship via three distinct articulations: by analyzing the biopolitical spatialities produced by the Nazi regime; by exploring the spatial implications of the work of legal theorist Carl Schmitt; and by interpreting in geographical terms the work of Italian political philosophers Giorgio Agamben and Roberto Esposito focused on the relationship between community, immunity and bios.
