Human Geographies of the Oceans: Territory, Governance, Mobility.

This paper explores the relationship between human geography and the ocean and challenges the grounded ontologies that underpin the discipline, which drive regimes of governance at sea. It offers a theoretical tracking of the uncharted territories of governance that foreground ocean management approaches before exploring alternatives that might be more mobile and dynamic. It does so through investigating - in particular - efforts to route global shipping traffic in key maritime bottlenecks worldwide. This paper argues that without critical consideration of the kinds of thinking - the ontologies and geophilosophies - that drive ocean management, it will lack the transformative potential many hope it will achieve for sustainable development.
