Abstract: Through a historical study of geographical knowledge and education in Singapore, I examine the workings of space and the connections with subjectivity and knowledge. I contend that geographical knowledge is pedagogical, (re)assembled and practised differently through the subject tribe of ‘Geography’. The research first traces the changing representations of school and academic geography set within the context of educational change. I argue that the pedagogical acquisition of knowledge in different venues and its role in stylizing the geographical imagination is often used to serve different purposes. Two particular subjects are studied – geography teachers and undergraduate geography students. In traversing the chasm between school and academic geography, they produce subjectivities that are spatialized in multiple and fractured ways. Apart from developing a deeper understanding of an academic discipline and school curriculum subject implicated in the politics of subjectification, the research will hopefully offer new insights in the cultural production of the educated person.
