GEOG 3631 - Urban Social Geography

Credits: 3

An examination of the ways in which urban geography facilitates an understanding of cities, how cities are conceived, lived and represented. The course helps students understand how different social groups in cities affect the spatial configuration of the urban landscape and how such landscapes have changed over the course of human history. It discusses the ways in which different social groups make claims on space and place, and addresses the question of how communities are delimited in the framework of “social space”.
