GEO310 Globalisation, Development and Indigenous Peoples

This course introduces you to globalisation including practices of colonisation, industrialisation, and theories of ‘development’ that are meant to enhance human wellbeing in multiple ways. You will explore the rights and interests of local and Indigenous peoples in land, resources and heritage, and critique the structures and processes of globalisation and development at different scales that deny, ignore or subsume those rights and interests. The course offers alternative ways of thinking, and their implications for creating more equitable and sustainable futures. It is a strong foundation for students from a range of backgrounds including geography, planning, environmental studies and tourism.
