With changing borders, Brexit and Trump it’s an interesting time for global geopolitics. Historically, and even more so in today’s current climate, political cartoons are released via newspaper and social media as a commentary on global power relations and nation-hood.
In today’s podcast we’re joined by Dr Daniel Hammett, from the Department of Geography at the University of Sheffield, to discuss what we can learn from such cartoons, the role of humour in political geography and his research into citizenship and geopolitics in Southern Africa.
