About the course

A central argument of this course is that geography can make important contributions in understanding the interconnections between economic, cultural, environmental and demographical forces at play in different parts of the world. Drawing on concepts of space, place, culture, power, and difference, the purpose of the course is to draw attention to inequalities around the globe and to provide a set of tools for grappling with the unequal conditions in which we find others and ourselves. We also raise the issue of scale in attempting to formulate a coherent conceptual framework for integrating power relations across the globe, from the human body up to global processes. These analytic tools provide a starting point for thinking about the possibilities for social change. Themes include critical perspectives on: geographic knowledge, colonialism and imperialism, labour markets, discourses of globalization, migration, vulnerability and sustainability. The course is given at evenings, partly web-based.
