Abstract. ‘Aerography' is an imagined scholarly discipline that is intended to raise questions concerning ‘unthought elemental and metaphysical assumptions in recent human geographies’. How, for example, would unexamined contemporary disciplinary assumptions change if geography were less ostensibly geocentric and more focused on the space of the aerosphere? This is an aerography of the role of aether and theater in the transformation of landscape’s meaning away from that of an earthly polity and its place to that of a natural scenic space, helping to pave the way for geography conceptualized as spatial science.
