Media Geography at Mainz (MGM) provides a forum for the exploration and discovery of the interdependent relationships between media and geography, demonstrating the lively potentials of this expanding field of study. The series queries the linkages between media, space, self, and society by probing the role of aural, visual, and digital media in the production of geographic knowledge and modes of comprehension. By examining media’s form, content, and affect, the MGM book series moves discussion through and beyond geography’s focus on visuality and representation to transcend current scales of inquiry. In so doing, MGM opens a dialogue that challenges naturalized scopic regimes, ideologies, myths, and truths that arise from mediated geographies, thereby contributing to this important discussion within geography.
