Social Geographies for a Post-Pandemic World (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.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 18 hours of contact time and about 132 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2021/22. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. However, we are constantly looking to improve and enhance our courses. There may be changes to modules in response to student demand or feedback, changes to staff expertise or updates to our curriculum. We may also need to make changes in response to COVID-19. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of material changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
