Videos

I have taught courses online for Virginia Tech for 20 years. Almost all of my 100+ video lectures are restricted to Virginia Tech students. In the Spring of 2017, I have decided to make some of the video lectures I am creating for my graduate course Political Geography available publicly on YouTube. These video lectures are for educational purposes only, and contain diagrams that I created for this purpose. I have also used images from texts and elsewhere: if anyone believes these violate fair use I’d be happy to correct any problem. Here are some links to videos now available on the YouTube channel I’ve created for these lectures.
