A Geographical Century: Internationalising Geography, 1871–1945 [This chapter provides a critical commentary on attempts to internationalise the discipline of Geography before and after the establishment of the International Geographical Union in 1922. Drawing on previously unused archives, the chapter analyses how a liberal geographical internationalism was created and performed at ten International Geographical Congresses, from Antwerp in 1871 to Rome in 1913, in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to challenge the intellectual influence of nationalism and imperialism. The early history of the International Geographical Union and the controversies associated with the International Geographical Congresses in Cairo (1925), Cambridge (1928), Paris (1931), Warsaw (1934) and Amsterdam (1938), discussed in the second and third sections of the chapter, illustrate how Geography’s fragile internationalism was repeatedly compromised through the interwar period.] http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png

Abstract

[This chapter provides a critical commentary on attempts to internationalise the discipline of Geography before and after the establishment of the International Geographical Union in 1922. Drawing on previously unused archives, the chapter analyses how a liberal geographical internationalism was created and performed at ten International Geographical Congresses, from Antwerp in 1871 to Rome in 1913, in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to challenge the intellectual influence of nationalism and imperialism. The early history of the International Geographical Union and the controversies associated with the International Geographical Congresses in Cairo (1925), Cambridge (1928), Paris (1931), Warsaw (1934) and Amsterdam (1938), discussed in the second and third sections of the chapter, illustrate how Geography’s fragile internationalism was repeatedly compromised through the interwar period.]
