Papaila, Alexa 1 EUS Grade Enhancement Option: Charles Meier Lecture In Charles Meier’s lecture, “The Space of Nations: Territory and History Before Globalization,” Meier discussed the evolving significance of spatial consciousness to describe the modern era. His lecture included the power territory has had in the political realm as well as how it was established through maps and social structure. Although Meier expertly presented on spatial consciousness, the lecture warranted much critique due to his circular arguments and relatively accepted and unoriginal thesis. Meier’s introduction addressed the decline of territoriality, promoting the idea that international relations and power are derived from interactions in the global economy. He mentioned direct foreign investment and globalization as factors contributing to this decline. The assumptions necessary to support subjects such as globalization (which Meier explained presupposes that territory has been a permanent fixture of population) were expressed to communicate what Meier views as a need to analyze territory.
