A Law and Geography Perspective on the New Haven School

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This article argues that the New Haven School's analysis of geographic issues could be enhanced by drawing from new conceptual developments in field of geography. After exploring the historical context for the New Haven School's limited interaction with the discipline of geography, the article focuses on the present body of New Haven School work and the geographical ideas explored in that scholarship. It contends that recent geography scholarship might help the New Haven School interrogate the concepts of place, space, and scale more deeply, and in the process, contextualize its internal and external analyses further.
