This module covers key sub-disciplines in Human Geography which address different social, cultural and political issues in the contemporary world. Economic Geography explores issues of globalization, inequality and mobility. The lecture block on Social Geography concerns itself with the theme of ‘place, community and identity’ and address issues such as race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender from spatial perspectives. Cultural Geography deals with the issue of ‘representation’, exploring how the past and present world can be ‘read’ through images, maps and texts. Political Geography concentrates on power, identity and representation, exploring topics such as, colonialism, nationalism, citizenship and social inclusion in specific places. A series of workshops are held, including local fieldwork in Dundee.
