Short summary
The article suggests that assemblage theory offers a fruitful approach to study territorializing and de-territorializing tendencies of far-right movements given its relational approach to discourses, materialities and affects. It redirects attention to the geographies of election battles, helps to interrogate the mediated geopolitics of far-right movements, and allows examining the territorialization of discourses and affects by considering differentiating geographies of fear and anger.
