This lecture sketches the contours of a political -legal theory of terrain. It argues that terrain is a useful concept to think the materiality of territory. Terrain is where the geopolitical and the geophysical meet, and it is therefore a helpful concept to make political -legal understandings of territory better account for the complexities of the geophysical.
