Geography is the study of societies and their environments, of peoples and places. This course introduces you to contemporary themes in the sub-discipline of human geography. Key themes include landscapes and place; environmentalism, environmental knowledges and sustainability; colonialism, migration and diaspora; global economies and protests; development and underdevelopment; geopolitics and governance; identities, difference and exclusion; children and young people's social experiences; and urban and country visions and transformations. This course is foundational to further studies of geography, but will also provide a strong basis to complement study in many social and environmental sciences and the humanities.
