The Remaining Geography of the Arab Springs Within the proposed perspective, trying to understand what the “Arab Springs” said (and still say) and how they said it (or how they keep saying it), what politicalness and spatiality dispositives they produced (if they did), suggests a revision of our traditional approaches. The issue is related to the actualness and the critical tools that political geography must have interpreting “what is happening”. And this without being confused with the geopolitical version of the events spread by the media; but also without renouncing the attempt to investigate the issues related to the transformation of political territoriality. This is a preliminary contribution to the debate. After developing a fundamental departure hub, namely the need to question the category of “the Arab world” and/or Arabness (understood as an epistemic hitch), we try to draw some trails, testing the guidance detectors for research. These suggest to analyse, among others, the political nature of the claims of the Springs, the scales of local territorial berths, the network dispositives of communication and the new patterns of human mobility.
