This PhD course is part of the thematic path "Social, Economic, and Political Sciences" of the PhD programme in Urban and Regional Development. The purpose of the course is to offer the PhD students in Environment and Territory the analytical tools in order to deconstruct the relationship between modernity, politics and spatiality. The main hypothesis is that space plays a foundational role is setting a specific understanding of modernity that take places in the primacy of the concept of territory. In particular, modern spatiality is centered around a calculative, topographical and cartographical rationality that sustains the very possibility of ordering the political space through policies and practices.
