Abstract

This article examines mapping genres and geopolitics through the case of Israel. It draws on various conceptual traditions, ranging from the sociology of knowledge, the sociology of religion, sociolinguistics, visual studies and critical cartography in order to identify recurring genres of maps that are used in territorial and geopolitical controversies. The types of maps produced embody different levels of institutional and scientific authority; they possess different substances and designs, and they fulfil varied functions. Given the ever more varied and increasingly user-defined mapping environment in neoliberal economies, it is important to understand generic map-types and their use of visual rhetoric in order to persuade a public of certain geopolitical visions
