Borrowing from geographic scholarship, this site is called “Everyday Geopolitics Houston” in order to foreground how daily routines, triumphs, and struggles in Houston are intimately connected to processes taking place in distant locales. Geopolitics is not just something that happens only in Washington D.C., the halls of the UN, or in practices of war and peacemaking abroad. Geopolitics happen here in Houston–in people’s living rooms, schools, and communities. With this in mind, this site was created with the goal of sharing ideas, art, and calls for actions emerging from my work in Houston, and beyond. As much as is possible, I hope this site may also be interesting or useful to all the amazing people who are–and have been for some time–working to address issues of justice in the city.
