Abstract

Diversely gendered experiences of post-unification Germany are examined in relation to dominant neo-liberal scripts of post-Cold War restructuring and the tropes of 'East' and 'West' underpinning reunification. This provides a possible framework for feminist geopolitics where geopolitics are 'refigured' in three ways: assessing the relation of gender to the discursive practices of geopolitics; addressing the use and contestation of geopolitical discourse by gendered subjects in the 'small transformations' of everyday life; and repopulating the landscapes of geopolitics to focus on issues of 'human security' in the cross-scale interactions of state, nation, economy, polity, family and the embodied (gendered) subject.
