Transformation of Germany's military-geopolitical positioning within armament projects between discourse and materiality (working title)

 
The aim of the project is to reveal the interrelationship between discursive and physical-material dimensions within Germany's military-geopolitical positioning and their transformation based on the analysis of crucial important arms projects and their further developments. In addition, on an overarching disciplinary policy level, a contribution will be made to anchoring the relevant questions of military geopolitical positioning more firmly in social science and human geography research. The PhD project is thus located within the framework of Critical Military Studies, which aims to critically reflect on the relationship between the military and society. Theoretically, an assemblage-theoretical analytical perspective will be developed that conceptualizes arms projects as structures (assemblages).
