Teaching Regions after the Election

I have been teaching an undergraduate architectural history course on the evolution of American regions and regionalism for several years.  Some of you have given me leads for readings... which is why I am back again as I plan my spring syllabus.  Although the students have certainly been cognizant of the contemporary red state/blue state divide, given the elections I want to be more focused in exploring the spatial turn of politics resulting in the  red/blue map of zones and rings (urban/rural/suburban, north/south/east/west).
