GEOG 357

Introduction to Social and Behavioural Geography

This Introduction to Social and Behavioural Geography will examine the social production of space and the spatial production of social identities, to show that space and identity are inextricably linked through power, agency, and human relations. This course will give students the opportunity to examine how meanings are negotiated at different scales and through different identities. Important themes include social inclusion, social exclusion, and marginalities; the duality of structure and agency; embodied geographies; and the spatial ramifications of the production of difference. The focus of this course are the relationships amongst individuals, groups, and society, and the spaces and places in which these occur.
