GEOG105 HM - Place, Power, and Difference

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Seitz

Description: This course introduces students to social and cultural approaches to space and spatiality. It explores how cultural geography can open up understandings of race, class, gender, sexuality, and other modes of social difference and power. The course critically engages a number of key concepts – space, place, scale, intersectionality, performativity, and orientalism - in leading intellectual debates about place, power, and difference. It will help students develop an awareness of how processes of identity and community formation are inherently spatial, and the significance of the work of social and cultural cultural geographers to political and intellectual struggles around difference.
