16:450:607 Geography, Space, and Social Theory

focuses on social theories that both inform and have been informed by geography. It emphasizes the meanings and productions of space, its contextualization in society and science, its fixing and alignment with hegemonic social and economic structures, and the many potentials that exist for its disruption and reconstitution as a site of difference and alterity. The course will be of interest to students across the social sciences where theoretical understandings are increasingly intertwined with cartographic and spatial concerns, metaphors, and metrics. Taught by Dr. Kevin St. Martin
