Social Geography (L7016)

15 credits, Level 5

Spring teaching

After an introduction to the development of social geography, you focus on the interactions between social relations, space and place.

These connections are explored through the geographies of class, ethnicity, sexuality and gender relations (and the intersections between them), at a variety of spatial scales, from local to global, and both urban and rural. We include geographies of activism, health and ability and gentrification.
