The CGGE National Identity module examines the geographic characteristics of national identity and the interplay of culture, politics, and place. The conceptual framework introduces some of the theories and ideas used by geographers to analyze national identity, emphasizing concepts such as nationalism, landscape, and public space. Each case study explores a geographic question about migration in the context of a particular region or country. The module's collaborative projects offer opportunities for students to discuss the case studies and engage in geographic learning with students in different countries.

The CGGE National Identity module's collaborative projects are designed to connect geography classes in different countries for online learning and are adaptable to a wide range of learning contexts.

If you wish to find a collaborator in a different region or country, you will first need to register your collaboration (no charge) with the AAG.
