Occidentalism is a discourse producing stylised images and essentialised representations of the West. Although Occidentalism has become the focus of renewed and sustained academic interest, spawning ever-increasing new literature written both inside and outside of the West, to date critical attention has not been focused upon the methodologies that are employed by researchers in this field. In the absence of such critique, my aim in this paper is to expose methodological weaknesses present in this literature on Occidentalism. I argue that geographers engaging with Occidentalism from the perspective of critical geopolitics have the tools with which to overcome these weaknesses and demonstrate the importance of such research in the light of the changing geography of the West post-11 September.
