Geography Knows No Boundaries

Credits: 3

In this course we will pursue the geographical quest of changing the world by first knowing it. Our semester will begin with a historical journey exploring the ways in which people have understood, contested, and represented the concept of “regions” throughout time. We will pay particular attention to the development of nation-states and international relations, as well as the challenges and opportunities posed by globalization. The second part of the course focuses on three contemporary regions of interest: Europe and the European Union, Southeastern Europe, and the Middle East. Finally, the last part of the course will examine a series of more general questions related to energy, global health, climate change, and global governance.
